      Victims of the terrorist act at Dubrovka are not allowed to
      participate in the trial of terrorists' accomplice

      Moscow City Law Court [Mosgorsud] which is hearing the criminal case
      of Zaurbek Talkhigov accused of the complicity to the terrorists, who
      took in October of the last year hostages in the theatrical center at
      Dubrovke has rejected a petition of attorneys for having in this
      trial the victims of that terrorist act.

      "We talked with all participants of the trial - with the prosecutor
      and the judge, reported on Monday to journalists the attorney Igor
      Trunov, who represents interests of those who suffered in the
      terrorist act. - They tell us that we are 100% right, but their
      position is - it is not allowed for the victims to participate in the
      trial".

      The attorney recalled, that those victims had to be informed on the
      acting UPK in separating of this issue in this criminal case with
      respect to Talkhigov, and that hasn't been done. "This is already the
      second attempt to boot out the lawyers from this trial, - asserted
      Trunov.- For the first time - [that was] when they were questioning
      the victims as the witnesses, but they simply forgot about us
      [lawyers]".

      Nevertheless, according to him, the lawyers' of the victims have
      filled out necessary papers in the court's office. He also emphasized
      that the court in the trial of Talkhigov did not suspect existence of
      the main witness - some Oleg Zhirov, who had had associated with the
      accused during the terrorist act. The attorney proposed to bring his
      client as the witness.

      Besides this petition to the Mosgorsud, the attorneys of the victims
      of the terrorist act at Dubrovka have filed a complaint to the
      Moscow's prosecutor and complaint to the Basmanny Law Court on the
      actions of one official - an investigator, who investigated the case
      of this terrorist act.

      Talkhigov has been charged with the complicity to the terrorists:
      according to the investigation, he was reporting to the terrorists
      about movements of the special forces units over a cell phone. The
      trial in the Mosgorsud is closed, and the session planned for Monday
      has been postponed till Tuesday.
