BERLIN, December 22, 17:06 /ITAR-TASS/. Mikhail Khodorkovsky said on Sunday he had always been ready to file a petition for pardon without pleading guilty.

“For the first time I heard about such a possibility from my lawyers on November 12, when they came to my prison and cited (Germany’s former foreign minister Hans-Dietrich) Genshcher as saying President Putin was not making a plea of guilt a condition for my release,” he said at a news conference.

“It was not a problem for me to write a petition for pardon,” he added.
