Jailed Russian oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky and his business partner Platon Lebedev arrived in the Moscow City Court on Tuesday to continue their attempt to overturn their conviction.

Jailed Russian oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky and his business partner Platon Lebedev arrived in the Moscow City Court on Tuesday to continue their attempt to overturn their conviction.

Already in detention since 2003, Khodorkovsky and Lebedev were sentenced to a further six years in prison for embezzlement and money-laundering in a widely condemned trial in December.

In February, an aide to Judge Viktor Danilkin, who convicted the two men at their second trial, said he was acting under orders from the Moscow City Court.
