MOSCOW, February 17. /TASS/. The defense lawyers of the Navalny brothers will file a cassation appeal against Tuesday’s court ruling. "We intend to further appeal the sentence," Alexey Navalny’s lawyer Vadim Kobzev said.
The brothers’ defense also intends to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). "An appeal in the Yves Rocher case has already been registered there as a priority," said lawyer Olga Mikhailova.
Opposition member Alexey Navalny said he did not understand why a fine imposed on him by an earlier court ruling was cancelled. He wondered what will happen to his arrested accounts. "I’ve been in the status of a person under suspended sentence for the last three years. Of course, I cannot travel abroad, but I can visit our country’s cities. For example, I’ll go to Sochi for the first time in three years," he said.
He also said he intended to continue his opposition activity.
Moscow City Court has upheld the verdict to brothers Alexey and Oleg Navalny in Yves Rocher fraud case. The judge said the court verdict of December 30, 2014 remains unchanged. The defense and prosecution appeals have been turned down.
The verdict for the Navalny brothers enters into force and is binding.
Russian oppositionist Alexey Navalny gets 3.5 years suspended sentence and his brother Oleg — 3.5 years in prison.
