Sakharov Museum sentence upheld

From Interfax:

The Moscow City Court has upheld the sentence against the organizers of the Beware of Religion exhibition, which was held at the Andrei Sakharov museum, who were earlier found guilty of fomenting inter-religious discord and fined.

The defense had asked for "the remission of the sentence and closing of the case due to the lack of corpus delicti," lawyer Anna Stavitskaya told Interfax.

The evidence considered by the court did not prove the charges against Yury Samodurov, director of the Andrei Sakharov center and museum, and employee Lyudmila Vasilovskaya, the defense said.
