Navalny Disbarred

Prominent Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny, who originally became well-known as a minority shareholder lawyer and anti-corruption activist, was stripped of his advocate status in the wake of his conviction in a controversial Kirovles case. Navalny commented that the Moscow Bar had no other option under the current legislation but to disbar him. Navalny was sentenced to a suspended 5 year jail term in the Kirovles case that he calls politically motivated. Currently Navalny is being investigated on similar charges in the equally controversial Ives Rocher case.
