Russian Opposition Leader Faces New Allegations

On Wednesday, Russian opposition activist Aleksey Navalny was brought an accusation of faking documents allowing him to work as an attorney.

      According to the Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin, investigation has doubts about the legality of A.Navalny’s receipt of attorney status in 2009. He said a signature on a document confirming Navalny's attorney status could be faked, as he didn't have enough work experience then to receive that status.

      Aleksey Navalny, a famous anti-corruption blogger and leader of street protests, has consistently denied any impropriety in relation to his professional qualifications. He already has three other criminal cases opened against him, including embezzling from a political party, deceiving an international cosmetics company, and conspiring to illegally privatize a central Russia distillery. All the cases give rise to doubts among those people who are closely related to an investigative practice.

      “The Investigation Committee has turned into something between [Joseph] Goebbels' hellish machine and the NTV channel,” Navalny wrote in his Live Journal Blog, referring to the head of the Nazi’s propaganda ministry and a pro-Kremlin television channel known for its “exposes” of opposition figures.

      Russia's Chambers of Lawyers said on Wednesday it would look into the allegations and that Navalny would be stripped of his attorney status if they were confirmed.
