Judge Ruslan Yakubayev involved in bribery case
The panel of judges decided to allow opening criminal proceedings to the ICR.
The Investigative Committee of Moscow opened a bribery case against Judge Ruslan Yakubayev of the Kuzminsky District Court. Permission to start the proceedings was given by the qualifying board of Moscow judges, reports TASS with reference to the press secretary of the Moscow City Court, Ulyana Solopova.
Earlier, Alexander Bastrykin, Russia head of the ICR, addressed the panel with the submission. He asked for permission to bring a case against Yakubayev under item (c), Part 5 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code (accepting a major bribe).
In April, Yakubayev resigned after investigators began a background check against him. President Putin appointed Yakubayev to the post of federal judge in 2014.
