Caviar Case

Olga Kurnosova, leader of the United Civic Front’s branch in St Petersburg, has been charged with smuggling black caviar.

In October 2008, police searched Kurnosova as she boarded the train from Astrakhan to St Petersburg and found a jar of caviar, which they said was illegally produced by poachers.

Kurnosova said the jar was a gift from her party colleagues in Astrakhan. She could face up to five years in prison if found guilty.
