Lithuania Finds Yukos Case Politically Motivated

From a RIA Novosti report on Lithuania’s refusal to extradite a former Yukos shareholder to Russia:

“Upon analyzing the materials on the Yukos case, we have concluded that this case is politicized and Mikhail Brudno has been persecuted, may be because of other people involved in the Yukos affair, and we have decided that the charges against him are politically motivated,” Laima Cekeliene said in a video interview with Lietuvos rytas daily.
