Moscow court to proceed with case over illegal entry into dwelling against Navalny’s ally
MOSCOW, March 2 (RAPSI) – The Presnensky District Court of Moscow has scheduled the preliminary hearing of a case over forcible violation of inviolability of dwelling against Lyubov Sobol, an ally of Alexey Navalny, for March 4, the court’s press service has told RAPSI.
Investigators allege that on December 21 a group of persons, among them Lyubov Sobol, repeatedly attempted to entry into an apartment, where an old woman resided, of a house situated in the Eastern District of Moscow. Those involved illegally used uniforms of Russia’s consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor.
After two attempts to enter the house had failed, Sobol deceived a delivery man saying she was a “abandoned wife with a baby,” could enter the building and as the old woman opened the door of her apartment Sobol pushed her back, entered the apartment, took a video of the premises on her phone, and left the place, according to the Investigative Committee.
The legislation sets the punishment for such a crime as imprisonment for up to 2 years.
