Navalny convicted of fraud

A court in Moscow has found the opposition figure guilty on new charges

Russian opposition activist Alexey Navalny was convicted on Tuesday in a fraud case. He is already serving a 2.8-year term under a separate sentence. He pleaded not guilty during the trial.

The Lefortovo court in Moscow agreed with the prosecution, which argued that in some cases, large donations to Navalny’s anti-corruption and political campaigning organizations were used by him and his co-conspirators to cover personal expenses.

Navalny was previously sentenced for fraud and given a suspended term. A court later ruled that he had violated the terms of his probation and sent him to prison last year.

The man claims he is being persecuted by the Russian government, which, he says, even tried to assassinate him with poison. Moscow denies the accusations, claiming that Navalny is working with hostile foreign governments to tarnish Russia’s reputation.
