The court recognized the Irkutsk merchant Dmitry Tolmachev guilty of holding a meeting without notice (part 2 of article 20.2 of the administrative code). He gave opposition leader Alexei Navalny a place on the territory of their furniture shopping center “Moscow” meeting with supporters on November 4.
As reports “Interfax” with reference to the lawyer of the businessman, the court has arrested a man for five days. Earlier for the promotions was for seven days, the arrested coordinator of Navalny’s campaign staff, Sergei Bespalov.
We will remind, some days before the meeting to the office door of a businessman attached a pig’s head.
The city headquarters of Navalny called the meeting an “open meeting of labor collective with the Bulk” and claimed that it does not need to negotiate with the authorities, because it is on private property.
Opposition leader Alexei Navalny announced his intention to participate in elections of the President of Russia in 2018 and leads an active campaign trips around the country. City authorities often refuse to coordinate his meeting with supporters or offer to hold them in remote locations at inconvenient times. As a result, in November, several events took place on private property without notice.
