Transport entities’ $60k claims against opposition rally organizers set for mid-November
MOSCOW, October 21 (RAPSI) – The Simonovsky District Court will consider three claims totaling to nearly 4 million rubles (over $60,000) against opposition figures Lyubov Sobol and Georgy Alburov filed by three Moscow’s transport entities on November 14, RAPSI reports Monday from the courtroom.
The claimants are the Moscow Metro state entity, the city’s public transport authority Mosgortrans and Autoroads state-financed entity.
Thus, Moscow Metro seeks for 272,000 rubles, Mosgortrans demands 657,000 rubles and Autoroads sues the opposition figures for more than 3 million rubles.
On September 10, another Moscow’s court ordered Alexey Navalny, Ilya Yashin, Ivan Zhdanov, Yulia Galyamina, Georgy Alburov, Lyubov Sobol and two other defendants to pay 1.2 million rubles ($18,600) to the Moscow public transport authority Mosgortrans.
According to Moscow’s public transport authority, on July 27, an unauthorized rally led to the public transport traffic delay and truck detention time.
Moreover, on October 1, one more court collected over 240,000 rubles ($3,700) from organizers of unauthorized rallies in central Moscow in favor of the restaurant Armenia. The court granted the claim in part. The plaintiff demanded to recover 551,847 rubles.
