Document confirming President Putin's consent to Sergei Sobyanin's nomination to Moscow mayoral election

MOSCOW, August 22 (Itar-Tass) - The Moscow City Court on Thursday has refused to conduct an expert authenticity check of President Vladimir Putin's signature on a document which confirmed President Putin's consent to Sergei Sobyanin's nomination to Moscow mayoral election.

On Thursday, the lawyers representing opposition candidate Alexei Navalny said in court that they have "substantiated doubts" in the authenticity of both President Putin's and Sergei Sobyanin's signatures on the document.

The lawyers said that they had received a copy of the document at preliminary hearings and allegedly established that the text of the document was printed not on the right form of the Moscow Mayor's Office.

"All this arouses our strong doubts in the authenticity of the document," a representative of Alexei Navalny declared.

Nonetheless, a representative of the Moscow Election Commission and the prosecutor have challenged the arguments of the plaintiff's supporters. "The document has been submitted. It arouses no doubts", the election commission's representative said.
