Appeal in Yevroset Case

Prosecutors have appealed the surprise acquittal of nine former Yevroset employees, charged with kidnapping but cleared in a jury trial at the Moscow City Court last month, Interfax reported Tuesday.

No date has been set for the appeal, which cites technical violations during the proceedings. The case is to be reviewed by the Supreme Court.
