The Russian Federal Peninsular Service said in a statement on Monday that by staying in Germany after “recovery” from his illness, “Navalny is violating the terms of his suspended sentence. The opposition politician believes the case is politically motivated .
“based on [Lancet] The publication, AA Navalny, was discharged from the charitable clinic on September 20, 2020, and by October 12 all symptoms of his illness have passed, ”the Federal Penitentiary Service statement says.
“Thus, the conditionally convicted person is not fulfilling the obligations assigned to him by the court and is developing control of the penal inspection [service]. “
The service states that Navalny has been ordered to appear in a penal control facility in Russia; Otherwise he will be liable and his suspended sentence will be replaced with genuine.
Navalny’s lawyer Vadim Kobazev tweeted late Monday that he had received an order from the Penal Control Services ordering Navalny to show up in Moscow until 9 a.m. Tuesday.
The case in question, often referred to as the “Yves Roche case”, dates back to 2014 when Alexey Navalny and his brother Oleg were convicted of embezzling approximately $ 500,000 from two Russian firms between 2008 and 2012. One of the companies was affiliated with French cosmetics. The company, Yves Rocher, and the investigation alleged that Navy people looted part of the amount. Both were sentenced to three and a half years in prison, but Alexi’s sentence was suspended.
Navalani replied to the news in an Instagram post saying: “Like I said, there is somewhere [Vladimir] Putin, in his bunker, filled his stomach and shouted, ‘Why didn’t he die?’ And if he does not die then he is guilty twice and now we will put him in jail. “
“But if the Lancet publication is being recognized at the state level, then where is the criminal case in toxicity ?!” she added.
Navalny’s press secretary Kira Yarmish tweeted: “This is just fantastic. The Penitentiary Service is trying to jump into the final train completely in order to know Navalny’s treatment well in Germany (Alexi’s probation period ends on December 30 Is happening!) And demands that he report for inspection! Tomorrow! “
The State Department will not reveal why the US has not spent any money on Russia for this poisoning or has issued a statement soon. Wednesday’s statement came after repeated requests for comment from CNN.
