Moscow, 1 October 2008 (Interfax):
A ruling of the Presidium of the RF Supreme Court rehabilitated the last tsar, Nikolai II, and the members of his family. “The Presidium of the Supreme Court ruled to recognise that Nikolai Aleksandrovich Romanov [Nikolai II], Aleksandra Fyodorovna Romanova, Olga Nikolaevna Romanova, Tatiana Nikolaevna Romanova, Maria Nikolaevna Romanova, Anastasia Nikolaevna Romanova, and Aleksei Nikolaevich Romanov were groundlessly repressed and rehabilitated them”, a Supreme Court judge said on Wednesday in delivering the court’s verdict. In doing so, the court granted an appeal by lawyers for the Romanov royal family against an earlier court decision denying their rehabilitation. The decision of the Presidium invalidated an earlier determination by a Supreme Court panel, which found that Nikolai II and the members of his family were not eligible for rehabilitation. more...
