Grounds for termination of the criminal case against the owner of Domodedovo Dmitry Mason and three former and current managers of the airport was the fact that the investigation could not appeal the requirement to the acting Prosecutor General of Russia, who recognized their criminal prosecution illegal. This was reported by “Kommersant” with reference to the available resolution of the investigation on the termination of the case.
In the document, first Deputy head of the investigation division of GSU SKR Sergei Vasilovsky indicated that on July 1, Alexander Gutan, at the time the acting Prosecutor General of Russia, made to the Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia (TFR) Alexander Bastrykin requirement to eliminate the investigation of violations of law and to stop criminal prosecution of Mason and the other three defendants in connection with absence in their actions of structure of a crime.
In support of its claim Gutan indicated that transport safety can not be regarded as a transport service, and its socially dangerous consequences, which involves culpable defendants in the case of article 238 of the criminal code are the result of improper rendering of the transport services. In addition, imputed to the defendants in the death of 37 people and injured another 170 people were the result of actions of the suicide bomber and his accomplices who have already received prison terms, the Prosecutor noted.
As writes “Kommersant” with reference to lawyers who have studied the decision to dismiss, the investigator in the document “all the text made it clear” that disagree with the requirement of acting attorney General, but is forced to obey him, because under the criminal procedure code of the Russian Federation the decision of the head of the Prosecutor General is final and not appealable. The newspaper points out that from the entire text of the resolution, which occupies 24 sheets, two dozen sheets, the investigator response to the description of the evidence against the defendants in the case.
