Kobzon's debtor was sentenced to 6 years in prison
The businessman Peisakhov lent the singer $ 25 million, which he lost in gambling.
The Odintsovo Moscow Region Court convicted businessman Vagif Peysahov to 6 years in prison for swindling in an especially large scale. The verdict can be appealed within ten days.
According to investigators, Peisakhov borrowed large sums of money from Joseph Kobzon ostensibly for development of their business, and actually spent it on gambling. February 1, 2014 the entrepreneur has taken from the singer amount of $ 25 million, which subsequently refused to return. Because of this, the artist went to the police, and, in fact, opened a criminal case of swindling. As investigators believe, Peisakhov originally did not intend to repay.
The businessman does not recognize his guilt, confirming the fact of receiving money. At the same time, he stated that all obligations on his part performed, offsetting part of the debt in the amount of $ 8 million. In particular, the owner offered to give Kobzon his shop in Stavropol and a few cars, but, according to the Deputy, it was not enough. Peysahov's relatives noted that the businessman was arrested on his way to Kobzon's office stressed the determination of the entrepreneur to repay the debt.
Corruption is overwhelming in the Republic of Bashkortostan. It infiltrates all branches of power. The recent arrests in the Bashkir Prosecutor’s Office clearly show that justice can be bought and sold there, while the verdict of Themis depends only on the purse size. All powerful officials and businessmen in the republic know how much it costs to institute or dismiss a case. After the replacement of the regional head, the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation has found out that not only the supreme authorities of the Republican Prosecutor’s Office are involved in the corruption scheme – but judges and high-ranked police commanders as well. What officials have sullied their reputation with bribe-taking and are going to fall victims to yet another sweeping purge? What are millions of rubles paid for? What is the true scale of corruption in the region – champion among national republics by that parameter?
