Discerned revealed in the repeated sentence Navalny in the “case “Kirovec” “amazing” similarity with the first
The community Discerned investigated repeated the sentencehanded down recently to opposition leader Alexei Navalny in the so-called “Kirovles”, and came to the conclusion that it is almost identical to the text of the first sentence imposed in 2013. As transfers TV channel “Rain”, a coincidence found in 56 of the 57 pages.
In particular, a very similar text of the first 23 pages, which presents the testimony of witnesses, said co-founder “of Discarnate” Andrew Sakin. Revealed the identity of this part of the text he called “delightful”. Any differences were found in seven paragraphs.
Previously, lawyers Navalny said that the judge simply copied the testimony of the witnesses who appeared in court in 2013 and 2017, although their presentations differ.
In addition, a new sentence is preserved the same order of examination of evidence of the old, although in reality the sequence differed.
“We studied the materials and questioned the witnesses in a different order. Accordingly, if the court wanted to keep at least the appearance of propriety, it would be a different presentation and a different sequence”, – commented on this fact the lawyer of the other defendant Pyotr Ofitserov Svetlana Davydova.
Less borrowing Discerned found in part where the court assesses the evidence (pages 44-55).
Recall that the first sentence in the “case “Kirovec” was issued in the summer of 2013, the judge of Lenin district court of Kirov Sergei Blinov, which found Navalny and Ofitserov guilty of embezzlement in especially large size and sentenced them to five and four years imprisonment respectively and fine of 500 thousand rubles. Three months later, the real term was replaced by a conditional.
However, the European court has establishedthat Navalny and Ofitserov were tried for acts which are impossible to distinguish from regular business activity. November 16, 2016, the Supreme court of the Russian Federation on the basis of the decision of the ECHR overturned the conviction and sent the case back for retrial to the same Kirov court. However, this time the process was presided over by another judge – Alex vtyurin.
Protection Bulk several times petitioned his removal, noting that vtyurin is subordinate Blinova, issued the first conviction and, therefore, may be subjected to pressure, but to no avail.
8 Feb vtyurin announced a new verdict Navalny, which coincided with the previous opposition leader was again convicted of stealing timber and sentenced to five years probation and a fine. Protection Navalny decided to appeal the verdict. Navalny himself has declared that will achieve its cancellation in order to participate in the presidential elections as a candidate.
