MOSCOW, November 10. /TASS/. The defence has appealed in a cassational procedure against the verdict slapped on opposition activist Ildar Dadin, serving a prison term in a penal colony for participation in unsanctioned rallies, his lawyer Kseniya Kostromina told Tass on Thursday.
"A cassational appeal has been lodged to the Supreme Court, in which we ask it to cancel the sentence of the Basmanny Court and declare our defendant not guilty," she said.
Dadin is the first person sentenced in Russia for violation of Article 212.1 of the Russian criminal code (repeated violations of the rules of public gatherings). In December 2015, Moscow’s Basmanny court found Dadin guilty of four episodes of participation in unauthorized protests in 2014 in downtown Moscow.
Dadin was sentenced to three years in a penal colony, and then the Moscow City Court decided to cut his jail term to two and a half years. He is serving his sentence in IK-7 penal colony in Russia’s northwestern republic of Karelia.
