Former major mobile retailer executive awarded $715,000 compensation
MOSCOW, September 16 - RAPSI. The court has ordered on Friday to pay almost $715,000 to a mobile retailer vice president as compensation for an ungrounded prosecution against him on charges of kidnapping, the Russian Legal Information Agency reports from the courtroom.
The Moscow City Court has satisfied the lawsuit filed by former Euroset Vice President Boris Levin for vindication and damages.
The funds will be paid by the Finance Ministry.
Based on the jury's verdict, the court acquitted nine suspects in the case of the kidnapping of a former Euroset forwarding agent on December 1. The Supreme Court's judicial board held against the prosecutor's office appeal of the acquittal on January 20.
Investigators blamed Levin, his deputy and some Euroset rank-and-file employees, and contracted private security agency for kidnapping, extortion and other crimes.
