MOSCOW, August 9. /TASS/. The prosecutor’s office has challenged the refusal by Moscow’s Lyublinsky Court to change blogger Alexei Navalny’s suspended sentence for a real prison term in the Yves Rocher fraud case, the court’s press office told TASS on Tuesday.
"The prosecutor’s office has appealed against the court’s ruling that denied granting a request from the Federal Penitentiary Service to change Navalny’s punishment from the suspended term to real imprisonment," the court’s press office said.
According to the Federal Penitentiary Service, Navalny is systematically breaching the duties placed upon him as a person with a suspended sentence.
As was reported earlier, the Lyublinsky court said it had refused to grant the request by the Federal Penitentiary Service as Navalny had not committed any willful violations in the execution of his suspended sentence and had fully compensated for the damage under the fraud case.
Moscow’s Zamoskvoretsky Court ruled on December 30, 2014 to find Alexei Navalny and his brother Oleg Navalny guilty of embezzling funds of Yves Rocher Company. The court handed down a 3.5-year suspended sentence to Alexei Navalny and sentenced his brother to 3.5 years in prison.
