MOSCOW, December 30. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Penitentiary Service has registered violation of house arrest regime by convicted opposition figure Alexey Navalny, and is notifying the court about that, service spokeswoman Kristina Belousova said Tuesday.
“Officers of the penal inspection registered violation by Alexey Navalny of terms of stay under house arrest. The fact is reflected in relevant documents, which have been submitted to court,” Belousova told journalists.
Moscow’s Zamoskvoretsky Court on Tuesday handed down a 3.5 year suspended sentence to Alexey Navalny and sentenced to 3.5 years in prison his brother Oleg Navalny after finding both of them guilty of embezzlement in the Yves Rocher company.
The court also ordered Alexei and Oleg Navalny to pay over 4 million rubles ($70,500) in favor of a complainant company in the trial as well as 500,000 rubles ($8,800) each in fines.
After that, reports on an unauthorized protest rally on downtown Moscow’s Manezhnaya Square appeared in social networks.
Navalny will remain house arrest until his suspended sentence takes legal effect. Earlier, that measure of restraint was extended for him until mid-February.
In 2013, Alexey Navalny was convicted in the Kirovles case. He and ex-head of the Vyatka Timber Company Pyotr Ofitserov were found guilty of embezzling Kirovles company property. Navalny got a five-year suspended sentence, and Ofitserov a 4 year suspended sentence.
