A court in the Saratov Region in southern Russia sanctioned
A court in the Saratov Region in southern Russia sanctioned the arrest of four persons suspected of involvement in the murder of the regional prosecutor, Russia's Investigative Committee said Sunday.

Yevgeny Grigoryev, 48, the chief prosecutor in the Russian Volga region of Saratov, was gunned down in a contract-style killing February 13 in the yard of the Saratov prosecutor's office at about 10:00 p.m. local time (7:00 p.m. GMT).

"Saratov's Volzhsky district court has ruled to arrest four suspects," Vladimir Markin, a spokesman for the Investigative Committee said.

Grigoryev, appointed prosecutor in February 2006, had earlier initiated regional laws to fight corruption. In 2006 alone, he opened corruption and abuse of office inquiries against 25 municipal officials and lawmakers.
