MOSCOW, December 31. /TASS/. Moscow’s Tverskoy court on Wednesday jailed for 15 days two participants of an unauthorized protest rally on Manezhnaya Square in downtown Moscow, the court told TASS.
“The Tverskoy court received two materials on Article 19.3 of Russia's Administrative Offenses Code (disobedience to police officers), they were granted, and the administrative offenders were given 15-day jail terms,” a spokeswoman said.
The unauthorized rally was held Tuesday evening, after the sentence to the Navalny brothers was announced.
Moscow’s Zamoskvoretsky Court on Tuesday handed down a 3.5-year suspended sentence to opposition figure 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 case.
The court also ordered Alexey 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.
According to the Moscow Department of the Russian Interior Ministry, some 100 people were detained for violation of public order during the protest rally on Manezhnaya Square on Tuesday.
Navalny is expected to remain under 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.
