KIROV, Russia: Russian protest leader Alexei Navalny on Wednesday escaped being sent to jail in a controversial embezzlement case after a court converted his five-year penal colony sentence into a suspended term. The appeal verdict meant that Navalny walked free from court although his fraud conviction, which disqualifies him from politics and his supporters say was ordered by the Kremlin, remains in place.
