Russia's Supreme Court on November 8 will consider a statement by Princess Maria Vladimirovna over the refusal to rehabilitate the members of the tsar's family."The statement over the rehabilitation of the royal family is to be considered on November 8,"a court official told Itar-Tass.Earlier, the Russian Prosecutor General's Office refused to give its consent to the rehabilitation of members of the Romanov tsarist family executed in Yekaterinburg in 1918."It was established during a relevant examination that there is no reliable evidence of any official decisions made by judicial and extra-judicial bodies vested with judicial functions regarding the use of repressions against the deceased. The existence of such decision is a mandatory condition for solving the question of rehabilitation," First Deputy Prosecutor General Alexander Buksman said.Lawyer German Lukyanov, who represents the interests of the royal house, said Maria Vladimirovna was hoping that the court would make an unbiased decision.The statement asking the Prosecutor General's Office to recognize the royal family members as victims of political reprisals was submitted in December 2005, on behalf of Princess Maria Vladimirovna who lives in Spain."In an 800-page petition, she asked to consider rehabilitating Nicholas II and his family /in accordance with the law on rehabilitation of victims of political repressions dated 1991/, shot to death in Yekaterinburg in July 1918.But on February 13, the Prosecutor General’s Office said there were "no legal reasons for rehabilitation.""It was a premeditated murder, albeit politically motivated, committed by persons who had no legal or administrative authority. No formal charges were brought against the emperor or members of his family. In this connection, the committed murder belongs to an ordinary criminal offense," the document said.Maria Romanova's lawyer protested the decision, insisting that the case be referred to court.Moscow’s Tverskoi court found no reasons for rehabilitation, and rejected the action in June.But the Moscow City court overturned the ruling on August 7, 2006 and ordered a reinvestigation.On November 14, 2006, after repeat consideration, Moscow's Tverskoi court said the Prosecutor General's decision was illegal, and obligated prosecutes to reconsider the appeal.
