Against the police officers who mounted that farce in that period, we filed a criminal report. the case by the prosecution, we appealed and the prosecution was ordered to register the criminal proceedings for the investigation of 4 police officers for forgery and abuse of office who mounted the farce against Artur Bakut. "It has not been hidden, it has been proven that he was a person under investigation, never a defendant and there is no final criminal decision for guilt. We have not even hidden the change of name," he said.

The criminal proceedings against him were terminated after it turned out that the wood had been purchased by a private entity without a tax invoice.
