STRASBOURG, July 25. /ITAR-TASS reporter Ilya Baranov/. The European Court of Human Rights / ECHR / doesn’t consider the criminal case of former Yukos CEO Mikhail Khodorkovsky and ex-head of the Menatep International Financial Association Platon Lebedev politically motivated. This has been stated in a resolution released today by the Strasbourg Court.
"As criminal prosecution lies in the center of this case, the Court doesn’t consider this a violation of Article 18 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms", the resolution states.
