MOSCOW, June 4 (RAPSI) – A court in the Stavropol Territory will hear a case against judge emeritus Nikolay Kaishev charged with bribery, the regional Investigative Committee’s directorate has told RAPSI.

Investigators believe that Kaishev acting as a judge of the Mineralnye Vody City Court attempted to conspire with a plaintiff trying to recover penalty from an insurance company. Kaishev hearing a 100,000-ruble ($1,500) civil claim filed by a man against an insurer demanded 50,000 rubles for delivery of a ruling in favor of the claimant.

He was arrested after the sentence delivery and receipt of the money.
