YABLOKO submits application dispute lawfulness of the recently adopted General Plan of Moscow Development

Press Release
June 7, 2010

Today, on June 7, YABLOKOТs leader Sergei Mitrokhin submitted an application to the Moscow City Court disputing lawfulness of the General Plan of Moscow Development. Mitrokhin asks the court to recognise adoption of the General Plan of Moscow Development null and void.

Mitrokhin indicates the following violations: the Plan was not coordinated with the Russian Government and the Government of the Moscow Region and failed to obtain a positive conclusion by the state expertise. Also the Plan lacked a package of required documents, in particular protocols of public hearings.

УThe conclusion of the state expertise was signed on December 22, 2009, a month after the draft General Plan of Moscow Development was submitted to the Moscow City Duma. This fact alone will suffice for abrogation, however, in our statement we indicate a number of other procedural violations,Ф Sergei Mitrokhin said.

We already have a positive precedent from St.Petersburg where they tried to adopt the same kind of plan. However, the Moscow Plan lacks a very important document Ц an approval by the Russian Government. This fact alone will play in the hands of the Muscovites dissatisfied with the Plan. УI donТt think that the bureaucrats will dare to fraud with such a document,Ф Mitrokhin said.
