MOSCOW, July 18 (Itar-Tass) - Any comments of court rulings are outside the competences of the Moscow city government, acting spokeswoman for the Moscow mayor’s office Gulnaya Penkovs said on Thursday, after a Moscow district court pronounced a verdict to opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
“It is outside the competences of the Moscow city government to comment on verdicts of the federal court,” she stressed.
Navalny is among the six officially registered candidates for Moscow mayor at early elections on September 8.
Earlier on Thursday, Alexei Navalny, an opposition leader and a mayoral candied nominated by the RPR-PARNAS party, was sentenced to five years behind bars for embezzlement of the property of the company Kirovles. He was arrested right in the courtroom.
