Ex-head of Dagestan summoned to court in former subordinates’ case
Former members of the government of the republic are accused of embezzlement of budget funds.
The Lefortovo District Court of Moscow summoned Ramazan Abdulatipov, the Special Representative of the Russian Federation at the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the former head of Dagestan, as a witness in the case against the former Prime Minister of the Republic Abdusamad Gamidov and the former Minister of Economy and Territorial Development Rayudin Yusufov. The news was reported on Instagram by lawyer Dagir Khasavov.
Gamidov and Yusufov are accused of embezzlement of budgetary funds using their official position (part 4 of Art. 160 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) during the reconstruction of a special detention center for foreign citizens and stateless persons in Makhachkala. In particular, the ex-officials are accused of embezzlement of 41 million rubles.
The defendants did not plead guilty. As noted by lawyer Khasavov, the special detention center was built, reconstructed and commissioned in the shortest time possible, and the amount of work performed exceeded that provided by the project. The defense of the ex-officials filed a complaint with the European Court of Human Rights.
