MOSCOW, February 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow bailiffs have closed proceedings against opposition activist Alexei Navalny, ordered to pay a 500,000 ruble fine, the Federal Service of Bailiffs said on its website.
Navalny’s attorney late last year reported that the fine was paid, but the receipt was presented to the bailiffs service only two days ago.
Navalny and Pyotr Ofitserov, a former head of the Vyatka Timber Company, were sentenced in July last year to five and four years in prison respectively and 500,000 ruble fine each. They were placed in custody at a regional court in Kirov, later released and given terms of probation in October.
Navalny was charged with organizing the theft of millions of rubles from the timber company. He appealed against the verdict, saying the case against him was fabricated and politically motivated.
