Court in Primorye Frees Four Believers From House Arrest

Primorye Territory

On November 19, 2019, the Primorsky Regional Court found no reason to extend the home arrest of Olga Panyuta, Aleksey Trofimov, Olga Opaleva. The next day, the court also released, Dmitriy Malevaniy. The counter arguments of the investigator that the suspects might flee abroad, the court found unfounded.

Update. It became known that the prosecutor opposed the decision in November 2019 to refuse to extend the term of house arrest for Aleksey Trofimov, Dmitriy Malevaniy and Olga Panyuta. On December 18, 2019, however, the Spasskiy District Court, chaired by Judge P.V. Bobrovich, decided to replace the measure of restraint (house arrest) for believers signing a recognizance agreement.
