Russian opposition leader Navalny jailed for 30 days over protest

Navalny organized a series of protests on May 5 in the Russian capital and other cities before President Vladimir Putin's inauguration for a new term.

The court on Tuesday said Navalny's 30-day sentence would come into effect immediately, a Reuters correspondent there reported.

"I hope this decision helps an enormous number of people who were subjected to this dumb, pointless, corrupt ban", Navalny wrote in a blog post reacting to the decision.

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who was detained during the May 5 anti-Putin rally, arrives at the courthouse in Moscow on May 15, 2018.

Navalny's lawyer Vadim Kobzev said the trial had "clearly political motives" as Putin begins his fourth Kremlin term.

Initial hearings in the case were postponed last week in order to field witness testimonies from police officers.

The anti-corruption campaigner, who has become Putin's most visible foe, has served several weeks-long jail terms for organizing protests.

Navalny has faced multiple legal cases over embezzlement and fraud, and was barred from running in Russia's presidential election in March.

Around one in 10 of those arrested were minors, according to the organisation. Separately, he was also convicted of disobeying police during the rally and sentenced to 15 days, but that sentence would be counted as part of the 30 days under Russian law. He could face up to 15 days in jail for that administrative violation.
