    03.04.2006 — The Court session | 3 Apr 2006

    Moscow municipal courtApril, 3:  The first preliminary court session of a new case of Aleksey Pichugin had taken place in the Moscow municipal court. In the dock, together with Aleksey Pichugin, are Vladimir Shapiro, Gennady Tsygelnik, Evgeny Reshetnikov, Mikhail Ovsyannikov and Vladislav Levin (all these men except Vladislav Levin who was sentenced for another criminal case, are members of „criminal group“ supposedly organized by Aleksey Pichugin and Leonid Nevzlin).

    The scope of this criminal case extends to 80 volumes, the lists of witnesses include more than 800 names, and from that amount 300 witnesses are going to speak in support of the defendant. Current trial in comparison with the previous one is given in public way, by the judge of the Moscow munifipal court Vladimir Usov instead of jury. Pichugin himself waived a jury; other defendants followed the same way. 

    We would like to remind you, that the way how the first trial was conducted is the reason of rejection the first jury tending towards the verdict of „not guilty“ was dissolved by the judge Natalya Olikhver. New jury that pleaded him guilty, in opinion of accused Pichugin, was under pressure of the Prosecutor of Generals Office. 

    The court session on the 3rd of April was attended by accused, state accuser Kamil Kashaev, lawyers, as well as by complainants, including Evgeny Ribin.

    The hearings of this case were postponed till the 16 of May, 2006, as new advocates were appointed to some defendants, and an advocate of another accused one was on a trip.
