MOSCOW, December 18 (RAPSI) – The case of Yevgeny Yerzunov, charged with murder threats against a judge, was transferred to court after a Prosecutor General’s deputy had signed an indictment against him, a statement on the official website of the agency reads on Wednesday.

The defendant stands accused of public calls for assaulting on the judge. He was arrested on November 13 while attempting to depart for Italy from Moscow’s Vnukovo airport.
