Navalny’s appeal against ruling in favor of Crimean meat plant set for May 28
MOSCOW, May 8 (RAPSI) - The Ninth Commercial Court of Appeals will consider an appeal against an order to remove and refute information on the Crimean meat processing plant Druzhba Narodov distributed by Russian opposition blogger Alexey Navalny on May 28, RAPSI has been told in the court.
Earlier, the court set the appeal aside because of its improper execution until April 26.
The Moscow Commercial Court ruled in favor of Druzhba Narodov on February 12. The court declared information distributed by Navalny in one of his videos untrue and discrediting the plant’s business standing.
The statements read that the meat processing plant inflated prices for food products purveyed for the National Guard, delivered bad quality goods and accused the plant employees of embezzlement during supplies.
According to the court ruling, the defendant did not furnish evidence of credibility of the disseminated information.
