Dagestan Prosecutor's Office withdrew case on beating policeman by ex-deputy Dzhamal Kasumov
Prosecutors returned the case to investigators, as the police officer, who was beaten by Kasumov, was not on duty.
The Prosecutor's Office considered the initiation of a criminal case against the ex-deputy of the regional Parliament, the kickboxing champion Dzhamal Kasumov, as illegal. The First Deputy Prosecutor of Dagestan Sergey Belyakov decided that the police officer, who was beaten by Kasumov, was not on duty, so there was no basis to investigate a criminal case under Article 318 of the Criminal Code (Use of Violence Against a Representative of the Power). According to the Prosecutor’s Office, the meeting between the ex-deputy and law enforcement officers was informal.
The case was returned for additional verification.
On 4 of October a criminal case against the ex-deputy of the National Assembly of Dagestan Dzhamal Kasumov was initiated.
According to investigation, the officer of the GUEBiPK of the MIA in Dagestan carried out inspection in relation to the Dagestan Energy Retail Company on suspicion of premeditated bankruptcy, illegal withdrawal of assets, embezzlement and abuse of authority by the management. The CEO of the company Magomed Ilyasov was invited for questioning, but he refused to come.
On 8 of August Ilyasov’s friend Kasumov, dissatisfied with the policeman’s actions, called him and arranged a meeting. During a quarrel in the Park of 50 Annual of the October Revolution, Kasimov hit the police officer in his face, which made him loose his consciousness. According to an expert, the policeman was inflicted light injury: he got "injury of face and brain concussion."
