MOSCOW, May 24 (ITAR-TASS) - The Moscow City Court on Tuesday commuted the sentence for former Yukos CEO MikhailKhodorkovsky and former MENATEP director Platon Lebedev within the second criminal case to 13 years.
The court thereby changed the verdict by Moscow's Khamovniki court dated December 30, 2010, which sentencedKhodorkovsky and Lebedev to 14 years in jail for theft of oil and money laundering.
The verdict became effective.
The Moscow City Court also met the prosecutor's petition, cutting the amount of stolen oil by 130 million tons and its value by more than 68 billion roubles.
