    February 27 (Itar-Tass) – Representatives of the Romanov House have asked the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office to send to court their appeal about rehabilitation of Russia’s last Tsar Nicholas II and members of his family.

    A lawyer of Imperial House head Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna, German Lukyanov, told Itar-Tass on Monday that “we have repeatedly sent documents to the Prosecutor General’s office addressed to the Prosecutor General with the request to send the rehabilitation case to court with a summary of the Prosecutor’s Office”.

    The lawyer cited an article of the law on rehabilitation of victims of political reprisals, according to which a rehabilitation case, if it is turned down, must be sent for a court review.
