MOSCOW, May 13. /TASS/. A Moscow court on Wednesday rejected the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service's demand to revoke Russian opposition activist Alexey Navalny's five-year probation and apply to him a prison term in the Kirovles case, a TASS correspondent reported from the courtroom.However, the Lyublinsky court has ruled to exntend his suspended sentence by three months to 5.5 years.
The penitentiary service said earlier that Navalny "had systematically violated public order" and requested the court to revoke his suspended sentence.
A representative of the Lyublinsky Prosecutor's Office has supported the FSIN demand. "Navalny has systematically violated the law," he said.
Meanwhile, Navalny said FSIN had no reasons to demand the revocation of his probation.
"I am a law-abiding citizen and police detain me illegally," he said adding that criminal proceedings against him aimed to hamper his anti-corruption work.
On July 18, 2013, the Leninsky District Court in the city of Kirov gave Navalny a five-year suspended sentence for embezzlement, while another suspect in the case, former head of Vyatskaya Forest Company Pyotr Ofitserov, received a four-year suspended sentence.
However, the verdict reads that the Federal Penitentiary Service may request the revocation of probation if suspects systematically disturb public order.
On December 30, 2014, Moscow's Zamoskvoretsky Court found Alexey Navalny and his brother Oleg guilty of embezzlement in the Yves Rocher case. Alexey received a 3.5-year suspended sentence, while Oleg was sentenced to 3.5 years in prison.
On February 19, 2015, Moscow's Presnensky Court sentenced Navalny to 15 days in jail for handing out leaflets outside a metro station.
