Kesaeva: "Voice of Beslan" cherishes no more illusions on Putin
Ella Kesaeva, co-chair of the "Voice of Beslan" Committee, has stated,
after receiving a reply from the RF President to the Committee's letter
asking to stop prosecution of the organization, the end of illusions in
relation to Mr Putin.
On January 30, the NGO "Voice of Beslan" received an answer from
President V. Putin to the letter in which the members of the Committee
asked to stop prosecution of the organization, and to the complaint
against the actions of the acting public prosecutor of Ingushetia who
had initiated a criminal case about recognition of the information texts
published by the Committee to be of extremist character.
"We addressed Vladimir Putin personally asking to stop prosecution of
the "Voice of Beslan", and he answered that the issue is beyond his
competence and forwarded our letter to the RF General Prosecutor's
Office. In their turn, they also assert that the issue is beyond their
competence. We think that this answer is illegal. All our illusions are
over today..." Ms Kesaeva told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.
According to her story, the letter runs that their complaints refer to
the Code of Criminal Procedure of the Russian Federation, and they will
not deal with them.
Earlier, the "Caucasian Knot" informed that the Supreme Court of North
Ossetia had obliged the Pravoberezhny Court of the city of Beslan to
consider the claim of the "Voice of Beslan" on appointing pensions to
parents of the children who perished in the terror act. The issue
remains unsolved till now.
