Putin Wins Over Khodorkovsky in European Court

The European Court of Human Rights has rejected former Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky's claim that he was prosecuted for political reasons.

The seven-judge panel, including one Russian justice, said in its 46-page ruling, "Khodorkovsky's case might raise some suspicion as to what the real intent of the Russian authorities might have been for prosecuting him, (but) claims of political motivation behind prosecution required incontestable proof, which had not been presented."
