The Moscow City Court in Russia has decided to postpone the trial of three groups linked to Navalny on suspicion of extremist activities until June 9, Tass news agency reported Wednesday.
Tass quoted the defendant’s lawyer as saying that the prosecution had submitted six additional volumes of appeal material to the court, which decided to give time to be informed of the material.
The Moscow City Court had planned to hear on 17 May the cases of the social movement organization Navalny Headquarters, the Anti-Corruption Foundation and the Civil Rights Protection Foundation for alleged extremist activities. All three organizations are associated with Navalny.
Prosecutors believe that the above-mentioned organizations engaged in extremist activities. They instigated violence and large-scale riots in an attempt to undermine the socio-political situation in Russia in the form of attracting minors to participate in illegal activities.
They coordinated and acted in concert under the manipulation of anti-Russian centers abroad, with the real aim of undermining the foundations of The Russian Constitution and launching a color revolution to overthrow the current Russian government.
The Anti-Corruption Foundation and the Civil Rights Protection Foundation have previously been identified as foreign agents.
