 YUKOS ex-lawyer asks for parole

YUKOS ex-lawyer Svetlana Bakhmina who is eight months gone in pregnancy has pleaded pardon from the Russian President, her lawyer said Tuesday. In her letter to Dmitry Medvedev Bakhmina writes about her conscientious work and community involvement in the colony.
      Bakhmina has pleaded guilty of embezzlement and tax evasion. Mother of two children, she said it is going to be a huge stress for the kid to be born in prison. In September she was turned down a parole request despite her pregnancy and certificate of good prison conduct.
