"I believe that the court's decision to seize the documents in the offices of independent magazine "The New Times" is absolutely illegal"

Mikhail Kasyanov comments on the situation with police investigators` visit to the offices of "The New Times" magazine:

"I believe that the court's decision to seize the documents on the sources of information of the recently published article in the offices of independent magazine "The New Times" is absolutely illegal.

The article in question contains nothing that would endanger national security, life and health of citizens. Without such motivation the court may not present such demands to the media. The court in its decision trampled on the statutory right and duty of journalists to keep secret the sources of information thus demonstrating political partisanship.

This case clearly characterizes an attitude of Putin and Medvedev to freedom of speech and press, to normal guarantees of professional journalism in Russia".
