A Russian court on Tuesday handed opposition politician Alexei Navalny a 3½-year jail sentence for parole violations, charges he and his team say are trumped up and politically motivated.
Moscow’s prison service requested the sentence on Monday, saying he violated the terms of a suspended sentence for fraud charges he received in 2014.
The judge on Tuesday said the year that Navalny has already spent under house arrest will be deducted from his jail term.
Navalny, a leading critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was already serving a 30-day prison term for parole violations following his arrest on Jan. 17. He had returned to Russia from Germany, where he had been treated for a nerve agent poisoning that took place last August.
The opposition leader has accused Putin of ordering the Novichok nerve-agent poisoning, but Putin and the Kremlin have denied any involvement.CNBC Television YouTube Channel
