ULYANOVSK, November 19 (Itar-Tass) — The Ulyanovsk Regional Court upheld a verdict against coordinator of the Left Front Sergei Udaltsov, who is fined 35,000 roubles for the beating of a journalist. The court ruling was announced after the hearings in a cassation appeal against the verdict of the district court on Monday.
“The court did not find any grounds to change the verdict of the court of the previous instance and finds that the guilt of the defendant is proved completely,” the court ruling runs.
Neither Udaltsov nor his lawyer attended the pronouncement of the court verdict.
On June 27, the Justice of the Peace Court found Udaltsov guilty of beating a journalist during an anti-NATO rally in Ulyanovsk on April 21, 2012 and sentenced him to 240 hours of compulsory works. Udaltsov did not plead guilty and the verdict was appealed. On August 23, the Leninsky District Court of Ulyanovsk handed down a more lenient verdict than that by the justice of the peace, replacing the compulsory works with a fine of 35,000 roubles. The lawyer of the oppositionist found the new verdict unjust and it was appealed as well.
