Court acquits son of Makhachkala Mayor
Badrudin Musaev was accused of an attack on traffic police officers.
The Sovetsky District Court has fully acquitted the son of the mayor of Dagestan capital, Kommersant reported citing the press secretary of the Dagestan Supreme Court.
Judge Patimat Makhatilova passed the verdict. A court representative told RIA Novosti that the judge had retired for the verdict on September 11, and the decision was not announced until the next day.
According to investigators, late on May 31, 2016 Musaev was drifting on a Mercedes-Benz at a crossroad in Makhachkala right in front of policemen. A chase followed and the offenders were stopped. Then Musaev and his fellow traveler Datsi Khazamov engaged in a fight with the traffic police officers.
A video was posted in June 2016 showing a Mercedes-Benz driving in circles around one of Makhachkala crossroads in front of traffic police. It was assumed that Musaev, Jr. was the driver.
Rossiyskaya Gazeta was told in the Prosecutor's Office that Musaev had refused to comply with legitimate demands of the policemen. He also threatened with violence to them in a crude obscene language. Then he struck one of the officers several times, causing him bodily harm of medium gravity.
The prosecution had requested to sentence Musaev to a five-year sentence in a general regime colony for using violence against a government official and to a 30.000-ruble fine ($500) for insulting a policeman.
The Prosecutor's Office had decided against opening a criminal case three times (under part 2 of Art. 318 of the Criminal Code). The second time the prosecutor's office said the case could not be reopened since one should not be held criminally liable twice for the same crime. At the new hearing the public prosecutor did not show up in court, therefore the verdict could not be reached. Late in December 2016, the Dagestan prosecutor's office approved the indictment and the case was passed to court for consideration on the merits.
During another session on Alexey Ulyukaev's case on September 26, the prosecution submitted to the court a protocol of examination of the bribe received by the ex-official in the amount of 2 million dollars and a videotape of his visit to the office of Rosneft.
Dmitry Ishaev, a businessman detained for severe beating of his father-in-law Viktor Ishaev (former Presidential Envoy and Governor of the Khabarovsk Region) and father of the reckless driver Igor Ishaev, was sentenced to a house arrest for a period of 2 months yesterday.

The trial of St. Petersburg oligarch Dmitry Mikhalchenko is about to start in October. Two weeks prior to its beginning, it became known that the family of Evgeny Murov, ex-Head of the Federal Protection Service of the Russian Federation, has acquired the lion’s share of Port Bronka assets. The CrimeRussia was figuring out whether this was a strategic move of the businessman in order to protect his ‘pet project’, or the price of silence of the high-ranked enforcement functionary?
