Russian Prosecutor General on Senator Kerimov's arrest: "It's inadmissable!"
According to the Prosecutor General, "constraints are essential when dealing with sui generis person."
After a visit to the headquarters of Interpol in Lyon upon the arrest of Russian Senator Suleyman Kerimov, Russia's Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika made a statement that, in his opinion, it is impossible to detain and arrest people with "special status".
The Prosecutor General notes that Kerimov, being an elected official, represents "the interests of a large group of people," which means that some "constraints" that will protect people with "special status" from arrests without serious grounds are needed.
"It is not quite the right practice to easily arrest people with special status, even on suspicion of some grave crime," said the Prosecutor General.
Chaika added that under international law, Russia has the right to request materials on this case in order to bring the perpetrator to justice, but "if he committed a crime in accordance with Russian legislation."
Recall, Russian Senator from the Republic of Dagestan Suleyman Kerimov was detained at the airport in Nice on November 20. Soon he was charged with money laundering and multimillion fraud.

The gray cardinal of Karachay-Cherkessia (KChR), Senator Rauf Arashukov used opportunities to influence the Cherkessian community of the region, especially youth. He was nominated to the post of Prime-Minister of the republic. However, no one shared his political wishes and methods of struggle. According to the sources of The CrimeRussia, the Senator masterminded the murder of youth movement leader Aslan Zhukov in 2010. Many people knew about, the witnesses of a high-profile crime testified against him. But the political weight and ties terminated the case. And even the self-proclaimed killer was unable to prove his guilt in court. However, as it became known the other day, six years after his acquittal, he gave himself up once again.
