The legal session in connection with the prosecution of US citizen Edmond Pope, accused of espionage against Russia, stopped. The Moscow court of law began consideration of the case at 12 o’clock, but an interval was announced in a hour. As it turned out now, the interval will draw out until October 20. During this period of time Pope’s barrister will have to prepare an application for complete medical examination of Pop’s health condition. It is claimed that Pope suffers skin cancer. Since he was detained, he has been many times examined by FSB doctors, but they all agreed that the disease does not grow progressively worse and he does not need special treatment. The barrister of Pope and US representatives do not agree with it. They claim that Pope needs cure and the problem is in the fact that English speaking doctor was not allowed to the prisoner.
