MOSCOW, January 19. /TASS/. The European Court of Human Rights has accepted Russian opposition activist Sergey Udaltsov’s appeal against his long home arrest over the case of an attempt to organize mass disorders.
The European court has launched an inquiry in connection with the appeal. It will be decided what priority to give to the case, lawyer Dmitry Agranovsky told TASS.
The attorney explained that Udaltsov had problems under long home arrest, including to see a doctor. He could only call an ambulance, but not go to consult a doctor.
On July 24 last year, a Moscow court found Udaltsov, Left Front coordinator, and Leonid Razvozzhayev, a State Duma deputy’s aide, guilty of attempting to organize mass disorders and sentenced them to four years and six months in prison.
The defense appealed against the sentence to the Russian Supreme Court. However, a date to consider the appeal has not been set yet.
