Naama Issachar's defense attorneys are preparing a case to bring before the cassation panel at the Supreme Court of Russia, appealing the verdicts of Khimki City Court and the appellation ruling at the Moscow Regional Court. The previous verdicts, delivered on October 11 and December 19, respectively, are deemed by her defense team to have been illegal and unjust, leading to the conviction of Issaschar despite her innocence, Maariv reported. Her team is also continuing to prepare a complaint to take to the European Court of Human Rights regarding claimed numerous and gross violations of Issachar's rights during her criminal prosecution. Issachar was pardoned by Russia's President Vladimir Putin in late January, returning to Israel following her detention in Russia for allegedly possessing a small amount of cannabis in her luggage during a stop-over in a Moscow airport. However, her defense team is arguing that the pardon and early release doesn't constitute the restoration of her rights, which they say can only be achieved by cancelling her unjust sentence.
