NEW YORK, February 18. /TASS/. Lawyers of Russian national Viktor Bout plan to submit documents to the US Supreme Court on February 21 to challenge the decision of the Court of Appeals in New York, which earlier ruled against holding a new process to review Bout’s case, Alexey Tarasov, lawyer of Bout said on Friday.
Viktor Bout is now serving a prison sentence in the United States.
"The documents will be sent to the Supreme Court on Tuesday, February 21," he said. Earlier it was reported that this will happen on February 19.
Earlier Tarasov said that the chances of the appeal were "not very high", as the US Supreme Court "takes in consideration only about 5% of the cases it receives."
"However, we believe that this case deserves the attention of the highest judicial authority in the US," the lawyer said earlier.
In November 2016, the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York ruled against holding a new process to review the case of Viktor Bout. The Court of Appeals ruled that the new materials in the Bout case provided by the counsel for the defense were not newly discovered evidence.
Viktor Bout was detained in 2008 in the capital of Thailand, Bangkok, on a warrant issued by a local court on a request from the United States. In 2012, he was sentenced to 25 years in prison in the United States for alleged illegal arms supplies.
