[JURIST] Lawyers for Platon Lebedev, business partner of jailed Russian oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky [JURIST news archive], said Thursday that they have asked the Russian General Prosecutor's Office for information on the whereabouts of their client and have also requested to see him. A spokesman for the prosecutor's office previously said that Khodorkovsky and Lebedev would face new charges following their fraud and tax evasion convictions [JURIST report] earlier this year. The new charges will be based on the "legalization of criminally obtained funds, totaling billions of rubles." Lebedev's lawyers have asked to see the order to commence criminal proceedings against him, the orders to extend preliminary investigations, and other procedural documents related to the potential charges. A prison official confirmed Wednesday that Lebedev and Khodorkovsky are being transferred from Moscow to the prison [JURIST report] where they will serve their 8-year jail terms, and said that their location will be revealed when their move is complete. From Moscow, RIA Novosti has more.
