12:55 09/09/2011

MOSCOW, September 9 - RAPSI. A Moscow district court has postponed until September 26 the FSB's defamation suit against a state television and radio company and a parliamentary deputy, the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI) reported from the courtroom.

The FSB is suing parliamentary deputy Alexander Khinstein for alleging on an April 15 Vesti FM radio broadcast that the FSB is involved in protecting illegal casinos in Moscow. Vesti is a state-run radio station.

The court postponed hearings upon the request of Khinstein, who will be unavailable on Friday, the day previously scheduled for hearings, because he will have to attend another trial.

The FSB has sought a court order for Khinstein to refute his allegation. It has not sought any monetary damages.
