The telegram reads, in part:
”In the community of judges Eduard Chuvashov was highly respected and influential as a qualified law practitioner honestly and responsibly serving the law, fulfilling his professional duties and never breaching his principles.
Every effort will be made for finding and punishing the contractors and executors of his cynical murder.“
The President also conveyed his condolences and support to the family and friends of Eduard Chuvashov and his colleagues at the Moscow Municipal Court.
Judge Chuvashov was killed on the morning of April 12 at the entrance of the residential building where he lived.
