MOSCOW, June 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow City Court on June 19 will consider the legality of the verdict on participants in riots on Moscow's Bolotnaya Square in 2012, a lawyer told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday.
"The court will review the appeal at 10.30 local time on June 19," lawyer Dmitry Agranovsky said.
The case over riots on Moscow's Bolotnaya Square was opened after the events on May 6, 2012, when a sanctioned opposition rally escalated to clashes with police.
Thirty police officers were hurt, and more than 400 people were detained. Several dozen rally participants were injured. Criminal proceedings were instituted over riots and violence against police. There were some 30 suspects in the case.
Criminal prosecution of eight of them was later dropped because of the amnesty marking the 20th anniversary of the Russian Constitution.
On February 24, 2014, a court found the eight defendants guilty, meting out to them suspended sentences and jail terms of up to four years.
