The ex-minister in the government of the Chechen separatists surrendered voluntarily to the republic's lawful authorities on March 8.
No criminal case was opened against Khambiyev, the prosecutor's office is only checking his activity. All orders issued and instructions given by him on the post of "Ichkeria's defense minister" will be thoroughly examined, the prosecutor said.
If no elements of grave and especially grave offenses are revealed in Khambiyev's actions he will be set free.
The power of the state lies in its ability to pardon. But it is the pardon from the people that Khambiyev must seek.
He said that during the latest amnesty in Chechnya 209 people laid down their arm. It is highly important that people should find their way for a peaceful life, Chechnya's Prosecutor stressed.
