Passed Senate without amendment (12/09/2003)

(This measure has not been amended since it was introduced. The summary of that version is repeated here.)

Expresses the sense of the Senate that the law enforcement and judicial authorities of the Russian Federation should: (1) ensure that Mikhail B. Khodorkovsky is accorded the full measure of his rights under the Russian Constitution to defend himself against any and all charges that may be brought against him; and (2) make every effort to dispel growing international concerns that the cases against Mikhail B. Khodorkovsky and other business leaders are politically motivated and that the potential remains for misuse of the Federation's justice system.
