MOSCOW, October 17. /TASS/. The European court of human rights (ECHR) has not established a political prosecution in a criminal case “Yves Rocher” against the Navalny brothers. About it reported in a press-service of the Ministry of justice, commenting on a published ruling of the ECtHR on the complaint Navalny brothers on their criminal prosecution in the case “Yves Rocher Vostok” for committing fraudulent acts.

“The ECHR refused to acknowledge the presence of “political motivation” in the actions of national law enforcement agencies in the prosecution of Navalny brothers in connection with committed their crimes,” — noted in the Ministry of justice. The Ministry added that the apparent unacceptability of the complaint in terms of allegations of political persecution “was so obvious for the European court that the arguments of the claimants about the alleged political overtones in their criminal prosecution was not even included in the subject of the research”, and the ECtHR rejected the claimants in respect of this claim at the stage of communication (reception of a complaint by approx. TASS).

Following the complaint, the Strasbourg court has substantially reduced the claimed Navalny brothers the sizes of indemnification of moral harm, court costs and costs as well as completely no compensation payments made by them in a civil lawsuit.

However, the Ministry of justice does not agree with the position of the ECHR on the procedural irregularities in the Bulk attraction to the criminal responsibility and the application of norms of the Russian criminal and civil legislation. “Currently, the ruling of the ECHR in the case “Navalnyy against Russia” has not entered into force. The legal position on the question of his possible appeal to the Grand chamber of the ECHR will be formed within three months”, — said in the Ministry of justice.
