The Presidium of the Moscow city court granted the request of Deputy Prosecutor General Vladimir Malinovsky, demanding the release from house arrest of the principal owner of Domodedovo Dmitry Mason, the correspondent from the courtroom.
“The decision of the Basmanny court of 14 April 2016 on the extension to the Mason of a measure of restraint in the form of house arrest to be cancelled,” announced the decision of the Chairman of Moscow city court Dmitry Fomin. As soon as the FSIN will receive all necessary documents from the court, the Mason will be able to remove an electronic bracelet that monitored his movements. According to the lawyer Mason Michael Kolpakov, this should happen as early as Friday, July 1.
According to investigators, top-managers Domodedovo in 2010 changed the scheme of airport security. This, according to the RCDS, allowed a suicide bomber in January 2011 to enter into the airport and detonate a bomb, which killed 37 and injured 172 people.
The Supervisory authority insists that it should be terminated a criminal case against top managers of the airport, initiated on the article “performance of works or rendering of services that do not meet the requirements of safety, entailed on imprudence death of two or more persons” (part 3 of article 238 of the criminal code). As noted in the statement of Malinowski in the name of the Chairman of the Investigative Committee Alexander Bastrykin, the cause of death was “acts of third parties”, that is suicide. This episode has already received a criminal-legal assessment,” insists Deputy Prosecutor General, noting that the actions of the leadership Domodedovo there is no crime.
Earlier, prosecutors repeatedly demanded from SKR to terminate the criminal case and release the accused, indicating that between the decision to change the scheme of examination at the entrance and death of people no communication. Sam Mason was called a matter of honor to prove his innocence.
At the meeting of the Moscow city court on Friday, July 1, the investigator Sergey Dubinsky again opposed the release of the Mason. According to him, “every airport is created to meet the needs in transport services”, for which Domodedovo received 16 certificates, one of which was called “the certificate of conformity of services provision of aviation security”. After that, said Dubinsky, the airport management changed the methodology of inspection.
“With the growth of passenger traffic they need to increase funds for security, but they went more simple way — to simplify the technology,” said Dubinsky. — I have personally interrogated the man who was preparing a terrorist attack. He said he visited several airports, but have chosen Domodedovo because at the entrance there was no one inspect.”
The defendants in the case, in addition to the Mason, are the former managing Director of CJSC “Domodedovo airport Aviation Security” Andrey Danilov, former Director of the airport Vyacheslav Nekrasov and former head of the Russian representation of the company “erport Menedzhment KOMPANI limited” Svetlana Trishina.
17 may it became known that the airport will create a philanthropic Fund for payments to victims of the attack. As has told the lawyer of victims Igor Trunov, the initial Fund volume will be 150 million rubles, but the money will not all the victims — some of them refused to pay, some people, the representatives of Domodedovo have been unable to find.
On June 22, the Basmanny court seized the accounts of Airport Management Company Limited, the management company of Domodedovo. As told by attorney Mason Michael Kolpakov, airport representatives suggested that “Deposit” as a guarantee for the victims who filed civil suits. The airport is specifically reserved in the Bank account a certain amount. This allowed the investigators to abandon the idea of arrest of property.
According to the official representative of the Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin, the seizure of funds is needed in order to ensure compensation of victims of terrorist attack at the airport.
