MOSCOW, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow’s Tverskoy district court will consider appeals against administrative arrests of anticorruption blogger Alexei Navalny and opposition activist Ilya Yashin, who were detained during the opposition rally in the centre of the Russian capital on December 5.

“The complaints will be considered at 10:30 and 14:30 Moscow time on December 7,” detainees’ lawyers told Itar-Tass.

Navalny and Yashin were sentenced to a 15 day administrative arrest for showing defiance of police orders.

The judge of the Tverskoy district court, Olga Borovkova, found the guilt of Navalny and Yashin proved, and announced the verdict against them under the article on defiance of police orders.

The detainees did not admit their guilt.

During the unsanctioned opposition rally on Chistoprudbny Boulevard in Moscow’s centre over 300 protesters, including Navalny and Yashin, were arrested.
