VIKTOR BOUT APPEALS DENIAL OF HIS MOTION FOR A NEW TRIAL BASED UPON NEWLY-DISCOVERED EVIDENCE


Viktor Bout
Alexey Tarasov, the Russian-American attorney representing Viktor Bout, has filed a notice of Appeal from the trial judge's order denying his motion for a new trial, based upon newly-discovered evidence. Tarasov had previously announced his intention to do so, on behalf of his client. Readers who are interested in the grounds that were asserted by Bout, in seeking a new trial, are directed to review the prior articles appearing on this blog, as they cover the issues in detail.

The case has been surrounded by controversy, including claims of entrapment, and unlawful targeting of the defendant, who had ties to the American intelligence community, as well as to arms trafficking in the developing world. His original conviction was affirmed by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.
