The North District Prosecutor's Office will not yet terminate the investigation into the death of Dmitri Ganin during the Bronze Night riots in April 2007, even though this Thursday ten years will have passed since the 20-year-old was stabbed to death, and the crime will expire.
“At the moment the file is under additional inspection, the aim of which is to establish whether there are circumstances regarding the offense that could stop its expiration,” the press officer for the North District Prosecutor's Office, Kaarel Kallas, told BNS on Wednesay.
Kallas said that the last procedural acts regarding the offense leading to Ganin’s death were carried out in September 2016, and that the investigation hadn’t identified any suspects so far.
A Russian national and resident of Northeast Estonia, Dmitri Ganin, 20, and his friend Oleg came under attack in the night to Apr. 27, 2007, in Tallinn’s Tatari Street. The attack happened during the riots that night following the announced removal of the Bronze Soldier monument from Tõnismägi.
