NEW YORK, November 3. /TASS/. Lawyers of the Russian businessman Viktor Bout, who is serving a jail term in the U.S. for an alleged arms transaction with the Colombian militant grouping Farc, will file a petition against the refusal of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York to reconsider the man's case.
The plans to petition the ruling were revealed on Monday by lawyer Alexei Tarassov who answered a question by TASS.
"We’ll file an appeal with the court of appeals of the 2nd circuit in New York," he told reporters for a number of Russian media. "If this appeal is turned down, too, then there’ll be an opportunity to file a petition with the Supreme Court."
Tarassov said a new appeal would be filed on Friday, November 6.
On Monday, a procedural conference attended by representatives of the Attorney General’s Office and the lawyers defending Viktor Bout was held in the court of the southern district.
Judge Shira Scheindlin who chaired it did not find the new facts and evidence provided by Bout’s lawyers sufficient for reexamination of the petition to revise the case.
