16:17 13/03/2020

MOSCOW, March 13 (RAPSI) – The Timiryazevsky District Court of Moscow dropped prosecution of Alexander Borisov, who had been charged with illegal storage of psychotropic substances on a large scale following a ruling of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), attorney Leonid Solovyev told RAPSI on Friday.

According to the lawyer, a prosecutor petitioned for the case termination and a right to rehabilitation. During  the last hearing, he withdrew all accusations, Solovyev said.

Earlier, the Supreme Court’s Presidium based on the ECHR ruling overturned a 4-year sentence given to Borisov. The Court in Strasbourg held that Russian authorities had violated the applicant’s right to a fair trial  and awarded 8,000 euros to the Russian man.
