Kirovsky Court of St. Petersburg convicted former bailiff Ghysmat Zeynalov for taking a bribe of 15 thousand rubles
Ghysmat Zeynalov, who is accused under art. 290 para. 3 of the Russian Criminal Code (taking a bribe in person as an official, in the form of cash, for illegal actions in favor of the person, represented by the briber), was sentenced to 2 years in a standard regime penal colony and a fine of 600 thousand rubles.
