The second circuit court of appeals Manhetenna refused to reconsider the criminal case of Russian citizen Viktor bout, who in 2012 was sentenced to 25 years in prison. About it reports Reuters, citing court documents.
The court of appeal felt that the new materials presented in the case are not evidence of his innocence. In the opinion of the Board, the trial judge did not abuse their position by refusing to hold a new trial in the case of Russian.
Lawyer bout Alexey Tarasov has not yet commented on the Agency decision of the court. The office of the Prosecutor in new York failed to promptly provide a comment to Reuters.
