KRASNODAR, September 22 - RAPSI. The second psychiatric examination has shown that the former police officer charged with several explosions in Sochi resort-city between 2008 and 2009 is insane, the suspect's attorney told RIA Novosti on Thursday.
Investigators maintain that police officer Ilya Galkin and his friend Mikhail Denisenko, a local TV channel employee, carried out nine explosions in various city districts killing 14 and injuring 20 people from June 2008 and February 2009. The suspects disguised the bombs as souvenir flasks or cigarette cases which went off in the hands of curious people.
The suspects admit their guilt only partially.
The Krasnodar Territory Court postponed the trial to allow time for the second mental examination of the defendant. Earlier examination of Galkin and Denisenko revealed their sanity.
