"The Prosecutor's Office in charge of Kyiv took procedural control over the probe initiated into criminal mischief committed against a Member of Ukrainian parliament Mustafa Nayyem and inflicting bodily harm on him. In accordance with the decision of the Kyiv city prosecutor's office, further investigation of this case was entrusted to the investigative arm of the Main Directorate of the National Police of Kyiv. All the necessary first-priority investigative and procedural steps in this probe have been already undertaken. Besides, as it was earlier reported, the Kyiv city prosecutor's office is drafting a motion on extradition of a person suspected of inflicting bodily injuries [on the MP] to Ukraine due to his detention in Azerbaijan," the report reads.
As reported, Nayyem was injured in a road-rage incident in downtown Kyiv on April 30. The MP was taken to hospital with a broken jaw and subsequently underwent surgery.
Police officers established that the lawmaker was riding in his car towards Bessarabska Square. A Mercedes cut his car off which caused a quarrel between the MP and a group of persons that accompanied the driver of the Gelandewagen. One of the assailants punched the MP in the face during heated argument.
The offenders fled the scene. The law enforcers later detained three persons. One more person managed to escape to Baku.
On May 1, Kyiv Prosecutor's Office served charge papers to the detainees.
On May 2, the Interior Ministry put the runaway attacker, Magomed-Amin Saitov born in 1989, on the wanted list.
