M with the rounded off ceiling where high, according to the lawyer, Platon Lebedev cannot be extended to the utmost - even lying on a cot. Thus in the afternoon the cot, unlike the general chambers, is fastened to a wall, and the prisoner in general has no place to be stuck. As a result, the mister to the Bar has told, its client had to sit on 14 volumes of judicial reports which to it have brought for acquaintance. Any special mockeries, according to the lawyer, from the pre-trial detention centre personnel, of course, was not, but without a dinner mister Lebedev remained regularly. The matter is that at this particular time it worked every day with the lawyers. Prisoners who carried a dinner, saw that in a punishment cell anybody is not present, and carried away a portion back. And any additional food in a punishment cell it is not allowed, there even it is impossible to smoke that especially afflicted the condemned Lebedev. According to Evgenie Baru, in a punishment cell and without that the weak health of its client became even worse: You present that the muzhik the right hand holds the jumping liver " literally;.

It is formal pre-trial detention centre administration can hold it there to twelve o`clock in the morning of Thursday, - Evgenie Baru explained yesterday. - anyway we will receive the information only on Friday .

But news has come earlier: at half past seven p.m. the head of Federal Agency of execution of punishments (FSIN) Yury Kalinin has informed that Platon Lebedev from a punishment cell have let out. Head FSIN has learnt about it shortly before the statement, as even could tell only in the afternoon what to define transfer time - business of administration of a pre-trial detention centre . In a pre-trial detention centre to make comments on something refused.

in the meantime Michael Khodorkovsky through the lawyers has declared yesterday that will continue hunger-strike until learns that Platon Lebedev is translated in the chamber. when I it (Michael Khodorkovsky. - ) saw last time, - lawyer Henry Padva has informed yesterday to journalists, - he muffledly spoke, it conducted, there was some block . However, doctors of a pre-trial detention centre did not see in it anything terrible. As they said, at condemned the usual condition, characteristic for dry hunger-strike " is fixed;. And as, in their opinion, no threat for life existed, and to resort to Michael Khodorkovsky`s compulsory feeding gathered nobody.
