Court arrested Navalny for disobedience to police officer
Earlier, the oppositionist was sentenced to a fine for organizing an uncoordinated rally.
The Tverskoy Court of Moscow arrested the opposition politician, founder of the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) Alexey Navalny, for disobedience to a police officer on duty at Moscow rally (Article 19.3 of the Administrative Code).
According to the protocol announced by the judge, Navalny participated in a mass event with 4.000 participants, called for a breach of public order, refused to go to the police station for drawing up a protocol and repelled police officers. Navalny did not admit his guilt.
"Everything that is written in the protocol is not true. The main mistake is that allegedly only four thousand people left for Tverskaya," the politician said.
Earlier, Navalny was fined 20.000 rubles ($352) for organizing a simultaneous mass stay of citizens in public places (20.2.2 of the Administrative Code).
Lawyer of the oppositionist Olga Mikhailova, giving speech in court, accused the police of forging the protocol on the detention of Navalny. According to the lawyer, amendments were introduced to the protocol retroactively. According to the politician, the article 19.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses (disobedience to the lawful order of a police officer) was not covered in the protocol, he did not sign such a document after the detention. Navalny learned about the new protocol compiled by law enforcers only this morning before the trial.
Navalny was detained in the afternoon of March 26 on Tverskaya Street at the very beginning of the rally (about 3 p.m.). Similar rallies with detentions were held in dozens of other cities of the country. In total, according to various estimates, from 8 to 20 thousand people took part in Moscow protest action. According to unofficial data, the police detained over a thousand of them.
Law enforcement officers also detained all members of the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) team in Moscow. Before that investigative actions under Art. 282 of the Criminal Code (Incitement of Hatred or Enmity) were conducted at the foundation’s office. The operatives seized all the equipment from the office. 13 FBK employees are still in the police station.
