, Index number: EUR 46/052/2007

Amnesty International is concerned about the ongoing failure of the Office of the Prosecutor General to respect the right of former YUKOS oil company head Mikhail Khodorkovskii and his associate Platon Lebedev to a fair trial in accordance with international standards. Amnesty International urges that the current criminal proceedings against the two men be transferred to Moscow, that the trial be held in Moscow, in accordance with Russian law and the Constitution, and that their right to a fair trial be respected.
