MOSCOW, April 24 (Itar-Tass) - The Kirov Leninsky District Court has refused to return the investigation files into the case of opposition blogger Alexei Navalny and former director of the Vyatka Timber company Pyotr Ofitserov to the Prosecutor's Office for an additional investigation.
Both Navalny and Ofitserov are standing trial on charges of embezzlement of property of the "Kirovles" enterprise.
The investigation files and a bill of indictment against the defendants do not have any essential violations which might impede an objective court investigation, the judge, Sergei Blinov, ruled on Wednesday. Thus, the judge turned down the appeal filed by the defendants' lawyers.
