Court to rehear agency's suit against Domodedovo over suicide bombing
MOSCOW, September 12 - RAPSI, Dmitry Shchitov. The Moscow Region Commercial Court has scheduled for October 25 preliminary hearings in the federal transportation agency's claim against Domodedovo Airport over safety violations that enabled an airport bombing earlier this year, the court spokesperson told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI).
On January 24, Magomed Yevloyev managed to take a bomb through Domodedovo Airport's entrance and detonate it inside the building. The terrorist act claimed the lives of 37 people, while injuring more than 100.
On April 8 the Moscow Region Commercial Court held in favor of Domodedovo in its appeal against a Federal Service for Supervision of Transport (Rostransnadzor) resolution that failings in the airport's security system had enabled the terrorist attack.
On August 17, the Moscow District Federal Commercial Court held in favor of an appeal filed by the federal agency, dismissed all decisions in the case, and submitted the case for reconsideration to the Moscow Region Commercial Court.
