MOSCOW. April 4 (Interfax) - The defense lawyers for Philippe Delpal, a citizen of France, who is a partner of the investment fund Baring Vostok for the financial sector industry, have filed a cassation appeal against his arrest.

"The Moscow City Court has registered a cassation appeal filed by lawyer [Tatyana] Tonova in defense of the interests of accused Delpal," the court told Interfax.
