A court in Thailand has formally ended a child molestation case against acclaimed Russian pianist/conductor Mikhail Pletnev, Guardian said citing the Russian National Orchestra (RNO).

Thai authorities failed to send Pletnev’s case to court in the required 84-day period, which expired on September 27, effectively ending the investigation.

Pletnev, the RNO conductor, was charged with raping a 14-year-old boy in July and could face up to 20 years behind bars if found guilty. He denied all charges.
