Russian editor freed

From Reporters without Borders:

Nikolai Goshko, the deputy editor of the weekly Odintsovskaïa Nedela, who was sentenced to five years of hard labour on 5 June for libel, was released by judge Andrei Lantsov on 19 August in Smolensk. Gochko said he thought the judge had bowed to pressure from international organisations.

Goshko had accused officials in Smolensk of being responsible for the murder of radio station owner Sergei Novikov.
