MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – September 16, 2021) Moscow’s Tverskoy court sentenced one of the participants in an unauthorized rally in Red Square to ten days in administrative detention for disobeying the police, Sputnik told their lawyer Sergei Telnov.
The day before, a video in which four young people displayed a poster in support of Alexei Navalny in Red Square in Moscow and started shouting political slogans appeared online. The rally was almost immediately interrupted by the police.
“The Tverskoy court ordered Rednikov’s administrative detention for ten days,” the lawyer said.
Officers wrote reports on four protest participants, as well as the reporter who filmed the rally. Two of the detainees were also charged with “disobeying the police” and were escorted into custody, awaiting trial.
According to the Administrative Code, irregularities in the conduct or organization of public action are punishable by a fine of 10,000 rubles ($ 138) to 20,000 rubles, or compulsory labor of up to forty time. The maximum sanction provided for in the article “Non-compliance with the legal obligations of the police officers” is fifteen days of arrest.
On February 2, the Simonovsky court in Moscow overturned Alexey Navalny’s suspended sentence in the Yves Rocher case and replaced it with three and a half years in prison. According to the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN), Navalny repeatedly violated the terms of his probation and was wanted before his arrest. Subsequently, the Moscow City Court approved the decision. Navalny is currently serving his sentence in a penal colony.
The Yves Rocher case was initiated by the Commission of Inquiry at the request of the former head of the company’s Russian office, French citizen Bruno Leproux. The court said Navalny and his brother Oleg tricked representatives of Yves Rocher into reaching an agreement for mail transport with their company.
According to the award, the services were provided at excessive rates and by another transport company. The total damage exceeded 30 million rubles – 26 million stolen from Yves Rocher, the rest stolen from the Interregional Transformation Company, which became another object of machinations.
