WASHINGTON, December 16 (Itar-Tass) —— The Council for civil society and human rights at the Russian president has completed a report on the second trial of former YUKOS CEO Mikhail Khodorkovsky and will submit it to Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday, council chairman Mikhail Fedotov told Tass on Thursday.
The second trial of Khodorkovsky and his companion Platon Lebedev extended their prison term by five years to 2016.
Fedotov said the 427-page report contains public examination of criminal case materials related to Khodorkovsky and Lebedev, but categorically refused to disclose the conclusions.
“The head of state has the implicit right to know them first,” said Fedotov now on a business trip to Washington.
He explained a pool of distinguished Russian scholars and experts from various countries, including the United States, Germany, and the Netherlands prepared the report from April to November.
“We have done our part of the job. Now experts in jurisprudence have to work. Everything will depend on the political decision of the president: which way he would like the developments to go by,” Fedotov said.
