A Russian judge has resigned after a video showed him asleep during a trial that ended with him sentencing the defendant to five years in a penal colony.
Critics of the Russian justice system, which has a notoriously high conviction rate, were outraged when the video purporting to show judge Yevgeny Makhno sleeping through a defense lawyer’s speech in court was posted online in January, Russian media reported.
"The Judges Qualification Panel accepted Makhno's resignation from his judge's post," regional judge and panel member Valentina Pozharskaya told state news agency RIA Novosti.
