You're reading: Russian investigators send Madonna gig complaints to prosecutors

St. Petersburg - The Russian Investigative Committee's Main Directorate for St. Petersburg has sent citizen complaints regarding a concert by U.S. pop singer Madonna to determine whether the alleged violation of the law actually took place.

“The claims were sent to prosecutors because they could contain
information regarding violations of the law,” the Main Directorate told
Interfax on Tuesday.

The claims do not contain any information about offenses that are within the Investigative Committee’s remit, the source said.

Madonna’s concert, part of her world tour, was held at the
Peterburgsky Sports Concert Hall on August 9. At the beginning of the
show the singer asked the audience to raise their hands with pink
bracelets in sign of support for sexual minorities and made a speech in
defense of the LGBT community.

Parent Control representatives complained to police and a number of
activists filed lawsuits seeking to compel the organizers and the singer
to pay 333 million rubles in damages. Prosecutors received 140
complaints.
