MOSCOW, July 5 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia hopes that the Libyan legal instances will try adequately an appeal in the case versus four Russian citizens, who are being kept under arrest in that country, Russian Foreign Ministry’s commissioner for human rights, democracy and supremacy of law Konstantin Dolgov told a press conference here on Thursday.
“Two citizens were already convicted, one of them was sentenced to life in prison, Dolgov with the same surname as me was sentenced to ten years. The Russian Embassy has already filed an appeal in the Libyan high legal instances,” the diplomat noted. “We hope that the appeal will be tried adequately,” Dolgov pointed out. “The comeback of Russians to the homeland is our priority,” he said.
The Libyan military court accused the group of Belarusian, Russian and Ukrainian citizens of abetting to Gaddafi’s rule and sentenced them to long terms in prison. In particular, Russian citizen Alexander Shadrov was sentenced to life imprisonment, another Russian citizen Vladimir Dolgov was sentenced to ten years in prison.
