No bail for Russia's richest man
The former Yukos oil boss, who is charged with embezzlement and tax evasion, had been seeking bail. His supporters say the case is politically motivated and claim the Kremlin is behind it. The latest decision means that Mr Khodorkovsky - considered a potential candidate for the presidency - will be in jail on election day in March. Mr Khodorkovsky's appearance in handcuffs on the opening day of the case on Monday was the first time he had been seen in public since his arrest in October. He arrived in an armoured van, and officials said he had been placed behind metal bars in the courtroom.
