MOSCOW, September 30. /TASS/. The decision of the Federal Migration Service’s department to refuse to issue Russian opposition politician Alexey Navalny a foreign travel passport is lawful as he is under suspended sentence, a Moscow court has said.
The Zamoskvoretsky court of Moscow rejected Navalny’s complaint against the decision. The lawyer said the actions of the migration service "made it impossible to fulfill the right to freedom of movement as guaranteed by the Russian Constitution."
Navalny applied for a foreign passport on July 2. A FMS representative explained that "under the administrative regulation, based on these grounds he was denied to be provided with such a state service."
The judge found no grounds to meet Navalny’s demands.
