ENGLISH VERSION: Court trial in Vladimir initiated in order to recognize the video named “Bailiff Piety” as extremist postponed till November 21; authors of the video will be summoned to court as the persons concerned
Judge Maxim Ignatovich granted the petition of the representatives of the Public Prosecutor’s Office of the city of Vladimir to have Mikhail Baranov and Anna Dombrovskaya, authors of the video, summoned to the court as the persons concerned. As reported by Portal-Credo.Ru", the hearing of the case on the application from the Acting Public Prosecutor of Vladimir to recognize the “Bailiff Piety” video as extremist started on 24 October 2014 in Oktyabrsky District Court of Vladimir. The video that had a link to our Portal is dedicated to the attempts of the court bailiffs to confiscate the relics of the Saints Euphymios and Euphrosynia of Suzdal from the Russian Orthodox Autonomous Church (ROAC).
Meanwhile the judge rejected the petition from the representative of Alexander Soldatov, founder of Portal-Credo.Ru, to summon the representatives of the Moscow Helsinki Group (MHG) which has a declaration of joint activities in the spheres of information and protection of human rights with Portal-Credo. From the viewpoint of the court, the petitioner failed to present sufficient evidence showing that the case under review affects MHG’s rights and interests.
Due to the emergence of the new participants in the proceedings and for other reasons of procedural nature the court session was postponed till November 21.
