      Lord Nicholas Rea, member of the British House of Lords, has been
      denied Russian visa.

      Lord Rea planned to attend the retrial of the Russian ex-security
      colonel scheduled for Monday. Mikhail Trepashkin, former officer of
      the Federal Security Service (FSV), had been earlier sentenced to four
      years in prison for possessing an unregistered weapon and disclosing
      state secrets. He won the support of human rights activist for his
      efforts to investigate alleged government complicity in the country's
      1999 apartment bombings that claimed over 200 lives. On Monday, the
      court planned to consider his pre-term discharge.

      The head of the Foundation for Civil Liberties Alex Goldfarb quoted by
      Echo of Moscow radio said the Russian embassy in London had explained
      they were unable to grant visa to lord Rea because the receiving party
      was the movement "For the Human Rights."
