MOSCOW, November 7 (Itar-Tass) — Former head of the Yukos oil company Mikhail Khodorkovsky who was sentenced to 13 years in prison will not request release on parole again, because he believes that the “system” has already given a response to him, Khodorkovsky's lawyer Vadim Klyuvgant told Itar-Tass.
“An application for parole had been filed in March, however, it has never been considered. However, there were a number of court decisions against this background, including those on parole for Lebedev, penalties imposed on Khodorkovsky by the leadership of the Segezha penal colony, as well as today’s court hearing that recognised legal one of these penalties. All this is a response to our request for parole,” the lawyer said.
Klyuvgant noted that he considers incorrect the mere phrase “repeated request” for parole, as the lawyers still do not understand what happened to the first petition filed in Moscow.
A repeated request is out of the question, he stressed: “The issue is not on the agenda now.”
