A Moscow court has turned down an appeal by lawyers acting for a former executive of embattled oil company Yukos
A Moscow court has turned down an appeal by lawyers acting for a former executive of embattled oil company Yukos, a lawyer said Thursday. "The Moscow City Court's rejection reads that there are no grounds to review the verdict" passed on former Menatep Group head Platon Lebedev, Konstantin Rivkin said. Lebedev and his business partner Mikhail Khodorkovsky were found guilty of tax evasion and large-scale fraud by a Moscow court in May 2005 and sentenced to nine years in prison. On September 22, the Moscow City Court reduced their terms to eight years. Lebedev is serving his sentence in northern West Siberia, and Khodorkovsky in a penal colony in the town of Krasnokamensk in East Siberia. Earlier, Ledebev's lawyers said he should be moved to a prison in Central Russia, as he has had difficulties in meetings with family members and also had serious health problems. However, a Federal Penitentiary Service spokesman said: "He is not restricted in meetings with relatives. There are no obstacles."
