MOSCOW, January 31 (RAPSI) – Former teacher of mathematics Dmitry Bogatov, charged with calls for terrorism and preparation of riots, has been released from the house arrest, attorney Sarkis Darbinyan told RAPSI on Wednesday.

According to the lawyer, the charges have not been lifted yet, and Bogatov is prohibited from leaving Russia.

Earlier, Darbinyan told RAPSI that a computer examination did not produce evidence that the defendant called for terrorism and extremism. Experts examined Bogatov’s electronic devices and did not find any illegal materials there, they also did not find any evidence of his involvement in the crimes charged, the attorney said.

Bogatov is charged with public calls for carrying out terrorist activity with the use of the Internet and organization of mass riots. The Presnensky District Court of Moscow initially put the mathematician in detention. Later, the defendant was placed under house arrest on the request of investigators.

Investigators believe that on March 29, 2017, a person hiding identity behind a pseudonym published texts calling for radically extremist actions. Law enforcement agencies involved in the case say it was Bogatov, who published calls for mass riots using special computer programs.
