[JURIST] Three women Russian judges are nearly halfway through Mikhail Khodorkovsky's [defense website] verdict document Tuesday after seven days of reading. The verdict-reading [JURIST report] has presented evidence that will most likely result in a conviction for Khodorkovsky, the former CEO of Russia's largest oil firm, Yukos [corporate website], as well as one time richest man in Russia. Khodorkovsky faces charges of tax evasion, fraud and money laundering [JURIST report], which could result in a maximum sentence of 10 years, although many speculate that the sentence could be much lighter [JURIST report]. Khodorkovsky's supporters believe that he is standing trial because of his choice to provide money to opposition parties in Russia. His defense team stated that the slow pace of the verdict-reading is another attempt by the government to actually divert attention from the verdict. Khodorkovsky has already been apparently found guilty on seven charges [JURIST report]. AP has more.
