MOSCOW, November 28 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow’s Tverskoy court has sentenced an activist of Left Front opposition movement to eighteen months in a penal colony, the court’s press secretary, Yekaterina Ilyina, told Itar-Tass on Monday.
Grygory Torbeyev was convicted of the use of violence against a public officer, she said.
During the Day of Rage unsanctioned protest action in 2010 he threw a burning flare at a law enforcement official.
During the debates the state prosecutor requested a two year imprisonment term in a penal colony for the movement’s activist.
The investigation found out that Torbeyev threw the flare into the face of police sergeant Yevgeny Kovalev, who tried to stop the unsanctioned action. The latter was hospitalized.
