MOSCOW, January 16 - RAPSI. The Supreme Court's Judicial Panel for Criminal Affairs has submitted for review the case against a student who was earlier sentenced to six years in prison for organizing a blast on Manezh Square in Moscow in 2007, the court told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI/ on Wednesday.

The decision partly satisfied the supervisory appeal filed by student Ivan Belousov's lawyers.

Belousov will remain in custody for the next three months while his hearing date is scheduled. He received six years in prison for disorderly conduct and illegal arms sales and is serving his sentence at a general-regime prison.

According to his lawyers, his conviction was entirely based on assumptions.

Meanwhile, a representative of the prosecution asked the panel to leave Belousov's sentence unchanged. Belousov pleaded innocent during the trial.

Prosecutors believe the 22-year-old student planted the explosive device with a capacity of 900 grams of TNT equivalent on the square, which was later set off by unidentified accomplices.

The bomb exploded on December 27 outside the Okhotny Ryad shopping center, which is visited by some 60,000 people daily. There were no injuries as a result of the blast. The court estimated the property damage at 1.371 million rubles ($45,300).
