kasparov arrested

Posted by 365Chess.com on August 17, 2012 in Chess news


Garry Kasparov, ex world chess champion, was arrested today( Friday, august 17,2012) at the Pussy Riot trial protest. “About 20 people have been arrested outside the court since the start of the judgement, according to AFP reporters at the scene. They include former world chess champion Garry Kasparov, now an opposition political figure.”

In his facebook page appeared:

“Garry Kasparov has just been arrested outside the Moscow courthouse where the Pussy Riot trial is taking place. He was not there to protest, simply to attend, and the police cornered him and dragged him into the police van. This photo shows the police assaulting him inside the van.


No official charges have been pressed against Kasparov yet. News on that topic are expected today.
