The subscription about nevyezde also has held good, though the question on it at this session of court was not considered at all.
Moscow City Court session has begun with performance of lawyer Michael Kuznetsova, asking to recognise Basmanny Court decision (it has been taken out on January, 14th this year) on excitation of criminal proceedings and attraction of governor Lisitsyn as accused by the illegal. The head of area at session was not present. From performance of mister Kuznetsova followed that Basmanny Court where the complaint of lawyers to actions of the State Office of Public Prosecutor, " was considered; to put it mildly, did not read our complaint .

Besides, the lawyer of governor Lisitsyn asserts that criminal case concerning its client has been raised without dosledstvennoj checks, and the representative of the State Office of Public Prosecutor could not deny protection arguments in court, and without naming neither signs, nor structure of a crime of mister Lisitsyn. According to lawyer Kuznetsova, as an occasion to prosecution of its client check of Crewe of the Ministry of Finance across Yaroslavl region in the spring of 2004 in which course management has revealed " has served; a number of insignificant lacks of work of administration of the region in general also recommended them to correct .

we Will remind that by results of that check the senior assistant to the public prosecutor Alexander Kizlyk has written to the management the official report which has laid down in a basis of criminal case of mister Lisitsyn. In particular, as inspectors of the State Office of Public Prosecutor, the governor " believe; deliberately exceeded the powers of office for the purpose of reception of possibility of an uncontrolled expenditure of means of the regional budget having signed the law About stimulation of economic development of Yaroslavl region accepted in April, 2001 a local thought.
