MOSCOW, January 14 (Itar-Tass) — The Moscow City Court will try on January 21 the lawfulness of the verdict to extend the term in arrest for aide to the State Duma deputy Leonid Razvozzhayev, who is accused of masterminding massive disorders.
“The Moscow City Court will try at 11:00 Moscow time an appeal to extend the term in arrest to Razvozzhayev on January 21,” Razvozzhayev’s lawyer Dmitry Agranovsky told Itar-Tass on Monday.
According to him, Razvozzhayev will participate in a court session through a video link from Irkutsk, where he was convoyed for the investigation of the criminal case, which was opened against him for banditry .
In his appeal the lawyer asked to cancel the court verdict to extend the term in arrest to the aide of the deputy as unlawful and groundless.
The Basmanny District Court of Moscow has earlier satisfied the appeal from the detectives and extended the term in arrest to the defendant until April 1, 2013.
Leonid Razvozzhayev is accused in the criminal case over masterminding massive disorders that was opened against him after the inquiry in the facts, which were showed in the documentary Anatomy of Protest-2. Left Front leader Sergei Udaltsov and his aide Konstantin Lebedev are also the defendants in the criminal case.
The detectives found that the documentary showed a meeting between the oppositionists and head of the Georgian parliamentary committee for defence and security Givi Targamadze and the debates over masterminding massive disorders in Russia with the foreign funding.
Under this criminal case Udaltsov was put on recognizance not to leave the city, Lebedev and Razvozzhayev were arrested. The whole trio faced the accusations that envisage up to five years in prison for them.
The second criminal case was opened against Razvozzhayev over the bandit attack, which he committed in Angarsk in 1997. The Russian Investigation Committee merged both criminal cases in one criminal case.
Meanwhile, the third criminal case was opened against Razvozzhayev for illegal border transgression on October 15, 2012.
