The counter-arguments of the investigator that the suspects could escape, the court recognized as unfounded.
Criminal cases against believers in Primorye were opened back in November 2018 after searches in their homes . In total, they were under house arrest for almost a year. In October 2019, Olga Opaleva suffered a stroke right in the convoy car. However, she still could not leave her home and was forced to wear an electronic bracelet on her paralyzed leg.
Update. It became known that the prosecutor appealed against the decision made in November 2019 to refuse to extend the term of house arrest for Alexei Trofimov, Dmitry Malevaniy and Olga Panyuta. On December 18, 2019, however, the Spassky District Court, chaired by Judge P. V. Bobrovich, decided to replace the measure of restraint for believers in the form of house arrest with a recognizance not to leave and proper behavior.
