MOSCOW, February 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Basmanny court in Moscow has satisfied a plea from detectives and has placed oppositionist Alexei Navalny under house arrest for violating recognizance not to leave the city and an administrative offence, Itar-Tass reported from the courtroom on Friday.
The court verdict does not envision daily walks, and Navalny should agree on any leaving of the flat with detectives. Judge Artur Karpov noted additionally that Navalny was banned to talk to media people over details of the criminal case.
Navalny will be kept under house arrest until April 28, but detectives may ask for extension of his house arrest.
Navalny’s lawyer named the court verdict illegal and stated about his intention to appeal it in Moscow city court.Alexei Navalny was found violating the recognizance not to leave the city many times making numerous trips outside Moscow without a specific permit of a detective and was found committing an administrative offence on February 24 for which he was sentenced to an administrative arrest of seven days.
Back in December 2012, Navalny was placed on recognizance not to leave Moscow and was obliged not to leave his permanent residence place without a permit of a detective. He is a defendant in the criminal case over 30-million-rouble (around $832.1 thousand) fraud and money laundering that was instituted after a probe of a petition from an Yves Rocher perfume subsidiary.
Meanwhile, Navalny is convicted in the Kirovles affair, as he and former head of the Vyatka timber company Pyotr Ofitserov were found guilty of Kirovles property fraud and sentenced to five and four years in suspension.
