MOSCOW, March 20 (Itar-Tass) — The magistrate section of a Moscow court on Tuesday returned the case against Left Front coordinator Sergei Udaltsov to police. Udaltsov was detained for an unsanctioned rally against the NTV Channel near the Ostankino television centre, his lawyer Nikolai Polozov told Itar-Tass.
"Today, court officials told me that the case materials had been returned to the Severnoye Medvedkovo police station in connection with errors and shortcomings," Polozov said.
He could not immediately elaborate on the shortcoming or faults.
At the same time, he noted that police "might have failed to write something in full or attach a necessary document.
Udaltsov is accused under Article 202, Part 2 of Russia's code of Administrative Offenses /violation of the establishment procedure for assembly, rally, march or picket/.
On March 18, some 300 persons rallied near the Ostankino television centre against the NTV Channel after it had run the Anatomy of Protest film. It alleged the participants in Opposition rallies had been paid money. This evoked indignation in some Opposition activists who called the film "propaganda material against the Opposition."
