The Russian Supreme Court refused to hear a resentencing appeal filed by the defense of the Crimean political prisoner Gennadi Afanasyev, reported his lawyer Alexander Popkov as cited by Hromadske.tv.
- In my opinion, they’ve have shown us a political decision not to reconsider Afanasyev’s case as "inconvenient" for the Russian authorities. Such a fast refusal to review the case is also noteworthy, said Popkov.
He added that the "Supreme Court of the Russian Federation is so uninterested neither in loud disavow agreement with the investigation, nor the torture circumstances that it even has not requested to examine criminal case."
Gennadi Afanasyev was arrested by the FSB in May last year. He was accused of involvement in "Sentsov’s terrorist organization" and sentenced to seven years in jail.
