MOSCOW, April 3 (Itar-Tass) – The Lenin district court of Kirov will begin, on April 17, the review of the criminal case against lawyer Alexei Navalny and former director of the Vyatka Timber company Pyotr Ofitserov, accused of squandering property of the Kirovles company.
"The hearing of the criminal case is to begin at 09:00, Moscow time, on April 17," the court said on its website on Wednesday.
Navalny is accused under Article 33, Part 3, and Article 160, Part 4 /masterminding misappropriation or squandering/, while Ofitserov is accused under Article 33, Part 5 and Article 160, Part 5 /abetting misappropriation or squandering/.
