MOSCOW, February 3. /TASS/. Russia is asking the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) to reject an appeal against sentences imposed on eight individuals charged after clashes between opposition rioters and police in Moscow nearly three years ago, a lawyer connected to the case is reported as saying.
Moscow district court sentenced those charged to jail terms of four years or suspended terms of three years and three months following disturbances in the capital's Bolotnaya Square in which more than 400 were detained and 30 policemen injured.
"Russia's government asks the ECHR in its memorandum to turn down an appeal against the court verdict handed down on defendants in the Bolotnaya disorder case," lawyer Dmitry Agranovsky is quoted as saying.
