 The fraud of the 21-st century

Dear friends in Russia and also in many other countries!

 I am grateful to you and all the people whom I do not know personally but who have supported Mikhail and me for the past two years.

 Unfortunately, I am unable to thank each of you in person, so I resort to the help of my lawyers.

 I admire and marvel at your courage as you hold fast to your convictions and good conscience against the threat of potential repression by degraded and totally corrupt officials from different agencies.

 They are trying to thrown us in the sea of organized lies in order to conceal the banal crimes of the most odious authorities such as fraud, theft by forgery, extortion, arrests and other repressive measures.

 I suppose it is absolutely obvious for everyone who knows me that I do not need to justify anything. On the contrary, I will prove the criminality of the intents and methods used in carrying out the fraud of the 21-st century.

 It can be easily done in any competent, independent and unbiased court, as I have already proved together with my lawyers in the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation when defending my rights and freedoms by employing all legal means in accordance with Part 2, Article 45 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation.

 I consider the decision of the Constitutional Court No. 4-P of the Russian Federation of March 22, 2005 to be the sentence for the whole system of Basmanny justice including the most philistine court, the Moscow City Court, the Office of the Prosecutor General and the Ministry of Justice.

 I think that this decision will ultimately expose the shameful and unlawful practice of false enforcement of the law.

 

Dear friends!

Be careful, because these sham law enforcers will soon create new provocations, possibly even against you in order to cover up the tracks of their own crimes and abuse of power and they are also capable of effectively liquidating Mikhail and me.

 Still, no one should take offence at our country, feel forlorn or hopeless, because the root of the problem is the systemic crisis caused by degraded officials, but not our beloved country itself. I have already expressed in court my feelings of profound contempt for and disgust at what they perpetrate.

 We have an opportunity to set things right, so that no one will ever feel ashamed of our country.

 I rely on you primarily to help the people I love and cherish, my family, my children and grandchildren as I understand that it is most difficult for them at this time.

 No one should have doubt that the sentence issued by the most philistine court on May, 31 of this year is the sentence determined by the authorities and in fact we are going to prove this in competent, independent and unbiased courts.

 With utmost respect and gratitude,

 Yours,

 Platon Lebedev

Sovest  ('conscience', 'integrity' in Russian),
an independent public group, was created Dec. 3, 2003,
to provide public support to the YUKOS shareholders and employees. Our principal purpose is to make the authorities respect civil rights of Mikhail Khodorkovsky and other defendants in the YUKOS case.
The main goal of the group today is to use all legal means insisting that victims of the Yukos case be released from incarceration, and to claim an impartial, open and fair trial.
The group is non-commercial and totally independent from any political or financial affiliations. All activities are conducted on a voluntary and gratuitous basis.
