Sergey Kondrashov was in court today for a hearing resulting from his arrest on April 7 for protesting the new St. Petersburg law prohibiting gay “propaganda,” Advocate.com reported.
In the hearing, the judge said the legal decision-making will be difficult because the wording of the law is vague, according to Kondrashov, discussing the events in a press conference afterwards.
One of the two arresting officers was unable to attend the hearing because of recent surgery, so the hearing was continued until April 23.
