MOSCOW, July 17 - RAPSI. The two suspects in the case of the May 6 mass riots on Bolotnaya Square in Moscow have submitted an appeal to the investigative authorities to close the case, their attorney Dmitry Agranovsky told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI/rapsinews.com).
The authorized rally on Bolotnaya Square ended with fights between participants and police officers. Dozens of people on both sides were injured and over 400 demonstrators were detained. After May 6, the opposition continued its rallies in the form of "people's promenades."
The court has so far placed 13 individuals in custody for taking part in the riots.
Several people have been formally charged with calls for mass unrest.
