Moscow court is set to start Monday a retrial of a man charged with a knife-wielding attack on a central Moscow synagogue early this year
A Moscow court is set to start Monday a retrial of a man charged with a knife-wielding attack on a central Moscow synagogue early this year, a court spokesman said. Alexander Koptsev, 21, was handed down a 13-year jail sentence in March after he had been found guilty of racially motivated attempted murder for stabbing nine men at the synagogue with a hunting knife in January, but cleared of instigating racial hatred charges. In June, Russia's Supreme Court overturned a lower court decision and ruled a retrial after both Koptsev's lawyers and prosecutors had appealed against the verdict, but remanded him in custody. The lawyers said the defendant was mentally unstable, and prosecutors said a 13-year was not enough as they wanted a 16-year sentence for Koptsev.
