MOSCOW, October 26 (RAPSI) – The Second Cassation Court of General Jurisdiction on Tuesday rejected an appeal filed by attorney Dagir Khasavov against his 6-year prison sentence for compulsion of evidence, RAPSI was told in the court’s press service.

The court also upheld sentence passed on two other defendants in the case.

In November 2020, Moscow’s Izmailovsky District Court convicted and sentenced the attorney and his accomplices. Ex-advisor of Dagestan’s government chair Abdusalam Dzhamalutdinov and chief inspector of the republican Account Chamber Vadim Yusufov received 4.5 and 3 years in penal colony respectively.

The lawyer's prosecution was related to a case against Deputy prime minister of Russia's Republic of Dagestan Rayudin Yusufov. According to investigators, Khasavov threatened a witness of prosecution via social media inducing him to change his testimony in court.

The lawyer was arrested in September 2019. He pleaded not guilty.
