Abstract

This paper discusses the need and possibility of applying quantitative linguistics methods to forensic investigation. The results of the examination of the texts appearing in the Beria case (“Beria's letters from prison”, interrogation protocols, the last words of the defendants) testify to the falsification of the trial and the entire process of removing Beria from power.
