New HRC head Fadeyev wants to ask law enforcement agencies why petitions of aggrieved parties at rallies left unanswered

MOSCOW. Oct 21 (Interfax) - Head of the Russian Presidential Human Rights Council (HRC) Valery Fadeyev wants to ask law enforcement agencies why the latter do not react to complaints filed by the aggrieved parties at the last summer's unsanctioned rallies.

"I met with my colleagues and discussed this case [the Moscow mass unrest case]. There is the matter of petitions filed by those who found themselves to be aggrieved parties at unpermitted rallies. There are petitions to relevant bodies and the Investigative Committee. These petitions are left unanswered. I am not a lawyer, but this is an obvious violation of procedures. I would like to understand why they are breached," Fadeyev told Interfax.

He said that he wanted to ask law enforcement agencies about that. "Yes, my point of view is that it is necessary to focus on that today. Only observing the procedures, one can hope for a just outcome for all," he said.
