NEW YORK, February 22. /TASS/. Viktor Bout’s lawyers have submitted documents to the Supreme Court of the United States to overturn the previously given Viktor in the case, Bout’s lawyer Alexey Tarasov told TASS.
"The case was filed to the Supreme Court of the United States," he said, explaining that the court will receive the documents within one day.
Viktor Bout is now serving a prison sentence in the United States.
In November 2016, the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York ruled against holding a new process to review the case of Viktor Bout. The Court of Appeals ruled that the new materials in the Bout case provided by the counsel for the defense were not newly discovered evidence.
Viktor Bout was detained in 2008 in the capital of Thailand, Bangkok, on a warrant issued by a local court on a request from the United States. In 2012, he was sentenced to 25 years in prison in the United States for alleged illegal arms supplies.
