MOSCOW, October 28 (RAPSI) – Moscow’s Zamoskvoretsky District Court is to hear an administrative case brought by a nonprofit organization established by opposition politician Alexey Navalny, seeking to reverse a Justice Ministry’s decision to add the foundation to the list of NGOs acting as foreign agents, on November 1, Valentina Norbakh, the court’s press-secretary, told RAPSI on Monday.

In early October, Russia’s Justice Ministry published its respective decision based on the Federal Law on NGOs.

The fact of the organization’s conforming to the “foreign agent criteria” had been established during the monitoring of its activity conducted by the Justice Ministry’s Moscow Main Directorate, the Ministry’s official website informed at that time.

The decision to give Navalny’s foundation the status of a foreign agent was made based on evidence of its funding from abroad, the acting director of the Justice Ministry’s NGO affairs department Vladimir Titov told journalists.

The organization was to be brought to administrative liability by court if it failed to comply with legislation and refused to register as a foreign agent, according to the official.
