D. The Court's request to submit the investigation file
45. Despite a specific request by the Court, the Government did not submit a copy of the investigation file into the abduction of Ramzan Rasayev. They submitted fifteen pages of case-file materials containing decisions instituting, suspending and resuming the investigation and a decision granting the first applicant victim status. Relying on the information obtained from the Prosecutor General's Office, the Government stated that the investigation was in progress and that disclosure of the documents would be in violation of Article 161 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, since the file contained information of a military nature and personal data concerning the witnesses or other participants in criminal proceedings.
