Magomed Guchigov has been dismissed for violation of the Prosecutor’s oath and "misconduct, discrediting honor of an employee with the Prosecution."

Magomed Guchigov, the senior assistant to the Prosecutor of the Shali district in Chechnya, has been fired after a scandal around the shooting from a wedding cortege in Moscow.

"Guchigov, who participated in the September 11 incident, involving the shooting from a wedding cortege in Moscow, has been dismissed for violation of the Prosecutor’s oath and misconduct, discrediting honor of an employee with the Prosecution", the RIA Novosti said quoting Aleksandr Kurennoy, the official Prosecutor's office representative of the Russian Federation.

The Prosecutor of the Chechen Republic Sharpuddi Abdul Kadyrov signed the order of dismissal today.

Kurennoy noted that Guchigov had not just concealed from the police as to where he worked, but also gave "conflicting testimony and evidence" that hampered the work of law enforcement officers.

As it had been covered earlier, September 11th, at Moscow's Kashirskoye Highway there was a shooting from a wedding cortege that consisted of luxury Porsche, Bentley and Maybach cars. Police arrested two suspects. Later it turned out that one of the detainees was Magomed Guchigov, the assistant to the Prosecutor of the Chechen Republic. He is also the nephew of the Colonel Nazhud Guchigov, who became known to the public primarily after his marriage to a 17-year-old girl Luiza Goylabiyeva.

Police opened a criminal case on Hooliganism (part 1 of Art. 213 of the Criminal Code), regarding the shooting from the cars in the wedding cortege in the south of the capital. On suspicion of involvement in the crime, two drivers from the wedding cortege were detained. One of the detainees turned out to be Magomed Guchigov, the assistant to the Prosecutor of the Chechen Republic. When the matter was clarified, the case was transferred to the Investigative Committee. It was also said that in respect of the offenders 17 administrative protocols have been drafted, including wrong-way driving and tinted glass.
