As stated in the message Department, 12 June 2017 Navalny was arrested for 25 days for an offence in connection with which he received a warning about possibility of cancellation of conditional condemnation. And now the FPS asks the court to extend his probation.
"In order to prevent the Commission from Bulk AA re-offending criminal-Executive inspection of Moscow sent to court a submission on the extension of the Bulk A. A. probation for one year", — quotes the press-service Agency Interfax.
"When I'm with a submission will read, there will be clear — maybe they [the rally] on March 26, there is also drag. We will strongly argue in court", — said the Russian service Bi-bi-si, the lawyer Bulk Vadim Kobzev.
The lawyer Navalny said that the extension of the probationary period will not affect the plans of nominating Navalny for President in 2018.
Two probation Bulk
"From the message of the FSIN, it is unclear what kind of business they want to extend the trial period", said Kobzev.
Navalny was convicted conditionally. In 2014, the Simonovsky court of Moscow found him guilty in fraud case "Yves Rocher" and sentenced to three and a half years of imprisonment conditionally with a trial period in five years.
Another case against Navalny on embezzlement of funds of the company "Kirovles" — was considered twice. The first verdict in the case of "Kirovles" was handed down by the Kirov court in 2013. The oppositionist was found guilty of fraud and sentenced to five years probation.
However, in November 2016, the conviction was overturned by the Supreme court of Russia in connection with the decision of the European court of human rights (ECHR), the case was sent for new consideration.
According to its results, in February 2017, the Leninsky court of Kirov again sentenced Navalny to five years imprisonment. In may, the Kirov regional court recognised a sentence lawful, and then he lost power. Probationary period — a year and a half.
"Probation is a period when people have to go to inspection and to be celebrated. When the deadline passes, do not need to register, explained Kobzev. In this period, with the Commission of offenses or crimes can change a suspended sentence for real".
"If the probationary period will be extended for a year — then in that case in which they ask to extend, by an extra year, during which he will go to check in, and it will apply these restrictions", — the lawyer told.
12 June 2017 — the day when in Moscow and other Russian cities held protest rallies, Navalny was detained at the entrance of his house. Simonovsky district court sentenced him to 30 days of administrative detention for repeated violation of order of organizing mass events. Later the term was reduced to 25 days.
A day earlier, Navalny urged his supporters to gather on Tverskaya street in spite of the agreements with the Moscow municipality about the rally on Sakharov Avenue. The politician explained that several companies at the request of the city authorities refused to organize on Sakharov Avenue stage and sound.
Bulk and elections
The politician linked the request of the Federal penitentiary service on extension of the probationary period with the presidential election.
"Probation, recall, is associated with the participation in the elections — he wrote in his blog. — Add another year during which I can't stand".
At the end of last year, Navalny has announced plans to participate in presidential elections in 2018. The election law does not allow him to do it because of a conviction in the case of "Kirovles". However, the politician said that the Russian Constitution contains no such restriction, so he will continue his campaign.
The Central election Commission of Russia (CEC) on June 23 issued a special clarification about the actions of Navalny, whose supporters opened a campaign headquarters in a dozen cities of Russia.
"Currently there is no official election campaign for the presidential election is not carried out, — said in a statement. — The official nomination of candidates will be possible from December this year." "Organization of staffs to support the "candidate" Navalny is outside of the formal election campaign", — stated in the message.
The CEC believes that after the announcement of the campaign, Navalny has no right to stand in presidents of Russia.
Bulk and FSIN
Federal service of execution of punishments is not the first time offered to toughen terms for Bulk. Last week Simonovsky court of Moscow reported about the next petition of the Federal penitentiary service on the replacement of probation in the case of "Kirovles" for real. However, this time the service has denied the statement of the court.
The FSIN has repeatedly asked to replace a suspended sentence on Navalny is real, but the courts of these requirements each time was rejected.
In mid-April, the same Simonovsky court refused to consider the petition of the service, who asked to oblige the Bulk not to commit an administrative offense.
