Chairperson of Moscow City Court Complains of Criminal Pressure

Moscow City Court Chairperson, Olga Yegorova, complained to journalists that criminal pressure upon judges has reached an “unprecedented scale.” Yegorova stated that 13 Moscow judges had recently requested police protection, and one of those judges was later assassinated.  Yegorova also said that for the first time in her 40-year career, she has personally received criminal threats. According to Russian Supreme Court data, nine judges were murdered in Russia during the last three years, but only two of those cases have been solved.
