The court in the Thai city of Pattaya acquitted Nastya Rybka (Anastasia Vashukevich) and Alex Leslie (Alexander Kirillov) in the case of illegal business activities. As RIA Novosti was told by their lawyer, six citizens of Russia and Belarus were also not guilty.
Rybka and Leslie also take part in the case of illegal “sex training” and the organization of prostitution. According to the lawyer, he can not say anything yet, but believes that “serious terms” threaten the client.
They are still subject to deportation to the countries of citizenship, but they will not be able to leave Thailand yet, as they are being investigated in connection with the organization of the provision of sexual services in the criminal group.
AFP journalists published a video of Nastya Rybka and Alex Leslie and colleagues moving from the police bus to the courtroom.

Rybka, Leslie and eight other Russians were detained for illegally conducting sex training in late February. They were first released on bail, and then placed in the center for illegal migrants. In early April against them we have put forward accusations of entrepreneurial activity and prostitution, and rape.
