Appeal Response – 12/02/2018

To the Court of the Chukotka Autonomous Area
4 Mira street, Anadyr

Response to “[Appeal] against [the decision of the Anadyr municipal court of 25.10.2018] relating to an administrative offence under p.1.1 art.18.8 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation against John William Martin III.”

Point #1:
There is a process of law that must be followed. The last paragraph of [the decision of the Anadyr municipal court of 25.10.2018] states: “This Court Decree may be [appealed] against in court of Chukotka through the Anadyr Town Court within 10 days from its receipt or its copy.”

Point #2:
The same decision was reached by two separate judges on two separate charges that were nearly identical in the facts of the cases.
1) [the decision of the Anadyr municipal court of 09.10.2018] by Anton Vladimirovich Kodes
2) [the decision of the Anadyr municipal court of 25.10.2018] by Nataliya Olegovna Bugayova

Summary:
Two separate judges made independent decisions on two nearly identical cases, both filed against me within the same month of October 2018. They both reached the same not guilty verdict. Additionally, Neither case was appealed, although it was clearly stated, on both decisions, that an appeal could be made within 10 days.

Request:
Please review all documents submitted for both cases, from 09.10.2018 and from 25.10.2018 including the audio record of both trials and all correspondence between the Russian officials and those of the US consulate office.

With Respect,
John William Martin III
