To the Court of the Chukotka Autonomous Region
4 Mir street, Anadyr
Appeal applicant: John William Martin III
December 19, 2018
against the ruling of December 18, 2018
On December 18, 2018, the Anadyr city court (judge Kutskiy K.G.) issued the ruling regarding the case on the administrative offense. According to the ruling, I (John William Martin III), born on January 6, 1972, the US citizen, is found guilty for committing the administrative offense under part 1.1 of article 18.8 of the Code of the Russian Federation on Administrative Offenses (CRFAO).
I do not agree with the issued ruling for the following reasons:
In the first two trials, October 9, 2018 and October 25, 2018, I was found not guilty. The findings were made, in part, due to the testimony of Alexander Velminskiy (A.I. Velminskiy) who testified on October 9th at trial.
The JUDGEMENT from October 25th states, in support of its findings, that: “According to the trial transcript of the 9th of October 2018, the witness Alexander Velminskiy confirmed that John William Martin III had been brought to Anadyr from Lavrentiya in the very beginning of August 2018, placed in the hospital, Chukotka County Hospital, where he has been living until the present. Since the moment he has been brought to Anadyr, ordered so by the authorities, A.I. Velminskiy has been supervising and monitoring John William Martin III, he has been accompanying him on his walks along Anadyr, the periodicity and duration of which have been determined by the Border Governance. At all other times, the above-mentioned citizen spends in the infectious disease ward of the Chukotka Country Hospital, the doors of which are locked (including daytime).”
