[JURIST] Moscow's Meshchansky Court Tuesday adjourned the trial of former Yukos head Mikhail Khodorkovsky (BBC profile) until November 9 after hearing testimony from about 80 prosecution witnesses. Earlier this week, the Russian court granted a request by the state prosecutor and prolonged Khodorkovsky's custody term until February 14. Khodorkovsky's personal trial website has reaction to the extension of custody. Khodorkovsky faces multiple tax fraud and evasion charges and oil giant Yukos owes over $17 million in back-taxes. MosNews has more. The Russia Journal has ongoing coverage of the Khodorkovsky trial and the court battles faced by Yukos. Read previous coverage on JURIST's Paper Chase of the Khodorkovsky trial.
