The Court will begin the hearing on merits on 7 September.
The Gagarin Moscow Court refused to return case against participants in the race on the Mercedes, which received in the media and the community wide response, to the Prosecution. As the correspondent of TASS reported, the Court rejected the petition to protect defendants in the case.
The defense stated in the petition that the indictment was drawn up with violations of the law, which excluded the possibility of sentencing. Lawyers noted that the indictment did not contain a clear description of the acts constituting a threat to the authorities. The Prosecutor's Office requested to reject the petition, because, in its view, the indictment was drawn up correctly and allowed you to decide the final decision.
The Court rejected the defense’s motion to exclude evidence, namely the results of psychological and linguistic expertise. The measure of restraint for defendants (under house arrest) has been left unchanged. The first hearing on merits the court appointed on 7th September.
