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."
