MOSCOW, July 2 (Itar-Tass) - Leader of the Left Front of the opposition Sergei Udaltsov has reiterated his appeal to the investigative authorities to let him submit the necessary documents so as to run in the election of the Moscow mayor.
"The Basmanny district court turned down our request to drop the remand sanctions against Udaltsov, who is kept under house arrest, on the pretext that this is in the competence of the investigative authorities, rather than the court. Therefore, we have appealed to the investigative bodies, asking them to ensure UIdaltsov's constitutional rights," Udaltsov's lawyer Nikolai Polozov told Itar-Tass. If Udaltsov's appeal is turned down or ignored Udaltsov will file a lawsuit, the lawyer said.
Earlier, the Moscow city election commission had refused to accept documents from Sergei Udaltsov's lawyers to register Udaltsov a candidate and insisted on Udaltsov's personal presence.
"There is a serious loophole in the law that does not specify how a person under house arrest can submit documents for the participation in the election," Polozov said. "We will use all possible levers and will go as far as asking the Constitutional Court for explanations," the lawyer said. "The law clearly stipulates a procedure that enables a person in custody run in the election," the lawyer added.
