12:50 23/08/2011

MOSCOW, August 23 - RAPSI, Irina Tumilovich. The Prosecutor's Office has appealed the courts decision to allow mixed fight world champion Rasul Mirzayev to be released on 5 million ruble ($170,000) bail. Mirzayev is suspected of killing a student with one punch, a district court spokeswoman Yevgenia Pazukhina told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI) on Tuesday.

Because of the appeal, the Moscow district courts bail decision has not yet entered legal force, and Mirzayev will not be released from custody until the Moscow City Court hears the appeal. The date for hearing the Prosecutor's Office appeal has yet to be set.

According to a law enforcement source, on August 13, near a nightclub in downtown Moscow, Mirzayev punched Ivan Agafonov, aged 19. Agafanov was taken to a hospital, but did not regain consciousness, and died several days later.
