MOSCOW, August 11 (RAPSI) — The Moscow Babushkinsky District Court has sentenced former head of a Dagestani state development enterprise Shamil Kadiev to 4 years in a strict regime colony for bribing ex-head of the Republican Directorate of the Federal Antimonopoly Service Kubasai Kubasayev with a Hublot wristwatch and a hunting rifle, the press service of the Moscow Prosecutor’s Office reports.
Additionally, the defendant was fined 7.7 million rubles (about $100,000 at the current exchange rate) and deprived of the right to hold state and municipal offices related to the implementation of organizational, managerial, business, and administrative functions, for a period of 2 years and 6 months, the body said in the statement.
The court established that Kadiev at the end of 2014 and the beginning of 2015 personally handed over the Swiss watch and the hunting rifle with a total value of over 500,000 rubles (about $7,000) to Kubasayev seeking his patronage and connivance when considering complaints about violations of the antimonopoly legislation committed by the enterprise, whose interests were represented by Kadiev.
In October 2019, the Moscow City Court upheld a 5 year prison term and a 10.3 million rubles ($140,000) fine, to which Kubasaev had been sentenced earlier by a lower court.
Kubasaev did not admit guilt.
