Yevgeni Aksyonov, the lawyer appointed by Russia to Estonian Security Police (KaPo) official Eston Kohver, who is being detained in Moscow prison with espionage charges, says that he hopes Kohver can return home next summer, Eesti Paevaleht writes.

Aksyonov said that if all goes according to plan, the court process begins in Pskov in about four months time. "It lasts for about 1-2 months. Then a decision is made and it is followed by silence. And after the silence, Kohver will be in Tallinn at one point. He will be silent at homeland, but he comes back," said the lawyer.

Estonian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mari-Liis Valter said that it is hard to take Aksyonov's words seriously, because every time he gives different information and presents a perspective suitable to him. "Some time ago, he said that the court session would take place at the end of 2014, then he spoke of the end of 2015, now about four months," Valter reminded.

KaPo official Eston Kohver was abducted at gunpoint on 5 September near the Russian border in Estonia while fulfilling his official duties, by unknown persons who came from Russia and was led across the border to Russia. Kohver is in Lefortovo prison in Moscow, being accused of espionage. Just last week it emerged that he has not actually seen his lawyer Aksyonov in nearly two months.
