Russia Drops Case Against 'Shariah' Lawyer
Russian investigators have dropped the charges against Dagir Khasavov, a lawyer who warned last April of "bloodshed in Moscow" if Shariah law was not introduced in Russia, Khasavov's lawyer Sergei Belyakov said on Ekho Moskvy radio on Monday.
"It is a complete and unconditional victory," Belyakov said, adding that Khasavov, who fled to Europe in the wake of his controversial statements, would soon return to Russia.
Belyakov received official notice from investigators on Friday that the case has been terminated because there were no grounds to prosecute, he said.
