Verdict in Khodorkovsky’s 2nd trial postponed

The reading of the verdict in the corruption trial of former Russian oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky has been postponed until December 27, the judge’s office said, CNN informs. A note about the delay was posted on the courthouse door just hours before the court session was due to begin, as lawyers and journalists began lining up outside the building. The court spokeswoman said she didn’t know the reason for the postponement and learned about it herself from the written announcement at the court’s entrance. The office of Judge Viktor Danilkin wouldn’t explain the delay.
