In Grozny, the police conducted an investigation into the beating of a Koran arsonist in a pre-trial detention center.
Last month, the media reported that Nikita Zhuravel, a resident of the Volgograd region who found himself in a pre-trial detention center in the city of Grozny, was beaten there by the son of the head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov.
According to information distributed by the publication Base in their Telegram channel, the police conducted an investigation into this incident. This issue was dealt with by police officers from the Akhmatovsky district of the city of Grozny, media reports.
The purpose of the inspection was to establish a possible violation of the law in the actions of the son of the head of Chechnya. It was reported that the republican prosecutor's office is keeping the progress of the investigation under its control.
According to Baza, as a result of the inspection, a refusal to initiate a criminal case was issued, since Adam Kadyrov is 15 years old, and criminal liability for such crimes is provided for from the age of sixteen.
Recall that story, associated with Nikita Zhuravel, began in May of this year, when a video circulated on social networks in which a then unknown citizen was holding a burning Koran in his hands against the backdrop of the Volgograd Cathedral Mosque. The next day after this, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation announced the detention in the Volgograd region of 19-year-old Nikita Zhuravel, who was charged with a crime under Part 2 of Article 148 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation “public actions... committed for the purpose of insulting the religious feelings of believers.”
Subsequently, the criminal case against Zhuravel was transferred to the investigative department of the RF Investigative Committee for the Chechen Republic, and he himself was transferred to pre-trial detention center No. 1 in the city of Grozny.
And on September 25, the head of Chechnya published a video in which his son inflicts several blows on Zhuravel sitting on a chair. Opinions are divided regarding this video. Many Russians supported the actions of Kadyrov Jr. But many also spoke out that beating a defendant in itself could be a violation of the legislation of the Russian Federation.
