The request of the "Wall Street Journal" journalist is rejected/ Evan

The journalist of the American daily "Wall Street Journal", Evan Gershkovich will remain behind bars.

This is after the court in Moscow rejected the appeal request for his detention.

The Moscow court said it has submitted his request for release to a lower level.

She stated that unspecified "conditions" are making it impossible to hold a hearing, but did not elaborate.

The ruling is the latest legal setback for Gershkovich, whose detention has been extended twice since his arrest, once in May and again in August.

With the latest court decision, Gershkovich will remain in prison at least until November 30, Russian news agency "Tass" reported.

Gershkovich, 31, was detained in March in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg by Russia's secret police on charges of gathering classified information at a Russian military compound.

On the other hand, the American daily "Wall Street Journal" has denied Russia's accusations./ REL
