Mikhail Savva, a professor at Kuban State University and director of grant programmes at the Southern Regional Resource Centre, has been transferred from a pre-trial detention centre to house arrest.

According to Elema Savva, Mikhail’s wife, today’s consideration at the regional court of a complaint brought by federal human rights ombudsman Vladimir Lukin on behalf of defendant Mikhail Savva came as a surprise both for his family and his lawyers.

Elena Savva has reported on her Facebook page that the conditions for house arrest are very strict. As a rule, only those registered as living in the apartment designated as a place for house arrest have the right to communicate with the person under house arrest.

As a result of the illness of Judge Vasily Makhov, the next hearing in the trial of Mikhail Savva at the Pervomaisky district court has been postponed for an indefinite period, Grani.ru reports.
