Russian jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny faces new criminal charges of establishing an organisation that poses threats to the rights of Russian citizens, the investigative committee said in a statement on Wednesday.

The investigators said Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation, which Russia labelled an “extremist” group and outlawed in June, carried out the functions of a foreign agent and incited citizens to commit illegal acts.
