Khodorkovsky Lawyer Under Fire

The Russian press review on the International Herald Tribune website has a blurb from a Kommersant article on Karinna Moskalenko:

KHODORKOVSKY’S LAWYER UNDER FIRE: Moscow’s Council of Lawyers has opened disciplinary proceedings against a lawyer for Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the jailed former Yukos head, on charges that she left her client without defense. The Prosecutor General’s Office and Russia’s registration agency have called for Karina Moskalenko to be disbarred, though spokesmen from the agencies would not say why. Ms. Moskalenko said that when she was informed of the charge, she thought it was a “foolish joke.”
