Grabovoy’s sect opens an office next to a church

Omsk, December 20, Interfax – The sect of Grigoriy Grabovoy, who promised to resurrect Beslan children as far back as last autumn, has begun its activity in Omsk with opening its office right next to a church.

It has been probably done to facilitate victim hunting. Indeed, a church is the first place to be sought by those who have lost their relatives or friends, the Komsomolskaya pravda daily writes on Tuesday.

The sectarians charge over one thousand dollars for the resurrection of a dead. Before it, one has also to go through a costly training. And if an applicant smokes on top of that, he or she has to pay another seven thousand roubles for a special course, as the addiction to tobacco is a necessary condition for the undertaking.

The investigation in court on fraud, which began after the scandal involving the Beslan children, has not been completed. Therefore, no penalty or legal dissolution of the sect has been effected.

The press service of the Moscow Prosecutor’s Office has stated that it can say nothing definite, the newspaper writes.
