A Siberian regional court has overturned a city court ruling in favor of jailed oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky
A Siberian regional court has overturned a city court ruling in favor of jailed oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a court spokesman said Monday. Chita Regional Court overturned a ruling by Krasnokamensk City Court that Khodorkovsky had been illegally kept in solitary confinement, citing "procedural irregularities affecting the interests of the parties," and ruled that the city court should reconsider the case. The court in Kranokamensk, Chita Region (about 1,850 miles east of Moscow), where the founder of embattled oil company Yukos is serving an eight-year term for tax evasion and fraud, invalidated the penal colony's decision to punish Khodorkovsky for leaving his work place. Khodorkovsky was sent to solitary confinement twice: once for keeping prohibited materials and documents, and once for "eating outside the designated premises," for five and seven days, respectively. Khodorkovsky's lawyers appealed the second punishment, saying the prison authorities "did not have sufficient grounds" to put him in solitary confinement. The next hearings have been set for April 4.
