Local activists present at the court hearing
Monday in the city of Atyrau say the judge ruled that unregistered Alga
party leader Vladimir Kozlov incited unrest among oil workers in a
remote western province with a view to toppling the government.

The
charges relate to violence in mid-December in the town of Zhanaozen
between striking workers and police. At least 14 people died when police
opened fire on rioters.

Property belonging to Alga is also to be
confiscated, effectively leading to the abolition of the authoritarian
government’s most robust critic.
