Former mayor of Vladivostok could not appeal the verdict
The ex-mayor of Vladivostok Igor Pushkarev could not appeal the verdict of the Tver district court. The Moscow City Court upheld the decision of the first instance, according to which the former head of the capital of Primorye will spend the next 15 years in a colony for abuse of authority and commercial bribery.
As reported on the Pushkarev website, the appeal was examined within two days. The court heard the arguments of the lawyer and the two-hour speech of Igor Pushkarev himself, but rejected their complaint and upheld the verdict. The former mayor of Vladivostok must spend 15 years in a strict regime colony and pay a fine of 500 million rubles.
For the first time such a decision was voiced in April of this year. For corruption crimes, the state prosecution asked the court to appoint 17 years of the colony. In June, at the suit of the prosecutor general’s office, accounts are seized Vostokcement holding as security for a civil lawsuit against Pushkarev and other persons involved in the criminal case. Later this decision canceled.
