MOSCOW, June 6 - RAPSI, Dmitry Shchitov. A commercial court of appeals has confirmed as unlawful an order issued by the Russian transport watchdog (Rostransnadzor) regarding violations in the Moscow's Domodedovo airport security system, the court told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI).
The court reversed the watchdog’s order on April 8.
The order was issued as a follow-up to the inspection, which exposed breaches to the airport security system after the Jan. 24 terrorist act at Domodedovo airport.
The court upheld a lawsuit to reverse the Jan. 27 order filed by Domodedovo Airport Aviation Security, Domodedovo Passenger Terminal and Airport Management Company, which are engaged inter alia in security issues.
The order said the airport failed to ensure all individuals entering the terminal are screened.
The court sided with the plaintiff and ruled for the order’s reversal.
The decision states that the applicable legislation does not oblige the transport services to examine all individuals entering the airport and their luggage.
This is the airport administration’s right, not an obligation, the court stated.
A terrorist bomb went off in Domodedovo on Jan. 24, killing 37 people and injuring over 100.
