Navalny’s Moscow flat seized ahead of re­turn

The Timaru Herald - - World -

Court mar­shals have seized Alexei Navalny’s Moscow apart­ment, in what ap­pears to be a warn­ing to the Rus­sian op­po­si­tion leader ahead of his pos­si­ble re­turn home. The politi­cian was dis­charged from a Ger­man hospi­tal on Thurs­day af­ter spend­ing weeks in a med­i­cally in­duced coma fol­low­ing his poi­son­ing in Siberia. Navalny, 44, has vowed to re­turn to Rus­sia and the Krem­lin has said there is noth­ing stop­ping him from do­ing so. But his two-bed­room apart­ment on the out­skirts of Moscow has now been seized by court -mar­shals to en­force last year’s $1.7 mil­lion court rul­ing in favour of a cater­ing com­pany linked to Krem­lin­con­nected busi­ness­man Yevgeny Prigozhin.
