Skuratov Gets Passport

MOSCOW -- Suspended Prosecutor General Yury Skuratov has received a new travel passport, officials said Monday.

Skuratov's new travel passport was issued in exchange for the old one that expired at the beginning of May, the international law department of the Prosecutor General's Office said.

The Foreign Ministry's consular service department annulled Skuratov's passport last Friday due to what it said were technical inaccuracies. As a result, Skuratov was unable to attend a forum to which he had been invited by Swiss Federal Prosecutor Carla Del Ponte.
