MOSCOW, November 25. /TASS/. Russian opposition activist and blogger Alexei Navalny said on Friday the Justice Ministry has paid him more than 3.4 million rubles ($52,700) in compensation as stipulated by the decision of the European Court of Human Rights.
"Yesterday I wrote that I won’t go to Kirov until they pay the compensation demanded by the ECHR. Today’s morning they paid it," Navalny wrote on his website.
A district court in the city of Kirov in the central part of European Russia on Thursday scheduled a retrial of a criminal case against Navalny and his associate Pyotr Ofitserov for December 5.
In July 2013, Navalny was found guilty of embezzling the funds of Kirovles company in the Kirov region and given a five-year suspended sentence as part of the Kirovles case. The second defendant, the former head of the Vyatka Forest Company, Pyotr Ofitserov, received a four-year suspended sentence.
The case will be reviewed by the Leninsky district court of Kirov due to the new circumstances.
