Court adjourns again in Khodorkovsky trial without firm verdict

The Moscow court reading the verdict in the politically charged trial of tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky adjourned Tuesday without pronouncing a final decision, postponing the laborious process into a third day.

The judge, reading aloud in a relay with two associates, finished reading summations of the prosecution's case on six of the seven charges against Khodorkovsky and business partner Platon Lebedev. The reading's phrasings appeared to give clear indication that both would be found guilty, but the court first must read summations of witness testimony.

A news report earlier Tuesday said the court had found them guilty on most of the charges, but Yelena Lipster, an attorney for Lebedev, said that the court's readings did not constitute a firm guilty verdict.
