Victim in Domodedovo terror attack case to withdraw complaint from ECHR
MOSCOW, June 8 (RAPSI) – A victim in the criminal case over terror attack at Domodeovo airport in 2011, Elena Krivolutskaya, is going to take back her appeal filed with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) against the airport management, RAPSI learnt from her lawyer Igor Trunov on Wednesday.
“Fourteen victims, including Krivolutskaya, have received compensations on their bank accounts, that’s why a motion is going to be sent to the ECHR, asking to withdraw an appeal,” the lawyer told RAPSI.
He added that 14 victims are going to take back their civil lawsuits in Russia which were filed during preliminary investigation of the case.
The Domodedovo airport owner Dmitriy Kamenshchik and several other ex-managers have been charged in the case over 2011 terrorist attack that left 37 dead. According to investigators, they have not provided sufficient security level that let the suicide bomber freely enter the arrival lounge and set off an explosive.
A suicide bomber detonated a bomb in the Domodedovo Airport’s international arrivals hall, killing 37 people and injuring 172, on January 24, 2011.
Doku Umarov, Russia’s most wanted terrorist at the time, claimed responsibility for the attack. Altogether, 28 men connected with the terrorist organization called the Caucasus Emirate were linked to the attack, according to the investigators. Seventeen of them were killed in special operations in 2011, and four were detained.
In November 2013, a Moscow Region court sentenced three men to life in prison and a fourth man to 10 years for their role in the suicide bombing.
