Yukos Convicted Bosses Could Appeal: Ombudsman

Russia's top human rights ombudsman Vladimir Lukin said that convicted Yukos bosses Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Platon Lebedev could appeal

Russia?s top human rights ombudsman Vladimir Lukin said that convicted Yukos bosses Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Platon Lebedev could appeal the 9-year sentence and even take the case to Strasbourg.

He said, ?The first stage in the trial has ended as the Meshchansky court of Moscow passed the verdict. As far as I know, the defense will appeal the sentence, or has already done so, in higher courts.?

The verdict may be challenged at the Moscow city court, the Supreme Court, the board of appeal at the Supreme Court, and, finally, at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, Lukin said.
