Court extends arrest of accounts of activist Antonova and her mother
The arrest of bank accounts of the Krasnodar activist Yana Antonova and her mother has been extended until May. The court ruling named the pensioner as an employee of an extremist organization, the activist herself has informed.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that in October 2019, Yana Antonova's home was searched within the case of money laundering at the Anti-Corruption Foundation (known as FBK)*. Her seriously ill mother was interrogated; and the pensioner's bank accounts were arrested. Yana Antonova treated the arrest of accounts as a form of pressure. According to her version, the mother's arrested accounts contain money that she had planned to spend on her disabled son.
The court extended the arrest of the accounts of Yana Antonova and her mother Zoya Shipilova within the FBK* case, although none of the women are associated with this Fund, the “OVD-Info”** project has reported.
“When my mother learned about the upcoming trial, she had a hypertensive crisis,” Antonova wrote in her Telegram channel, adding that the court ruling called her mother an “employee” of the FBK*.
*The Anti-Corruption Foundation (known as FBK) is an NCO that is included by the Russian Ministry of Justice (MoJ) in the register of NCOs performing functions of a foreign agent. It is also recognized by a court as extremist and banned in Russia.
