Lawyer Maria Kolesova-Gudilina is Deprived of her License

At the end of April it became known that the lawyer Maria Kolesova-Gudilina did not pass certification in the Qualification Commission at the Ministry of Justice. On 10 May, the lawyer reported that she was deprived of her license.

She wrote on her twitter, "That’s it. Not an attorney anymore. Colleagues have decided to expel me from their ranks. Like Nelson Mandela used to say: “For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” That’s how I live".

She defended political prisoners, involving blogger Eduard Palchis, former investigator and founder of the ByChange project Yevgeny Yushkevich and others.
