In Krasnodar territory the former Chairman of the scherbinovsky district court Turitsyn Alexander was sentenced to 5.5 years in a strict regime colony for a bribe and attempted fraud. About it “lente.ru” reported in a press-service of the Rostov regional court.
Turitsyn was taken into custody in the courtroom. The term of punishment shall be calculated from July 22, 2020.
Himself a former judge said “the Tape.ru” that the crimes of which he was accused of was a provocation of the FSB, organized after he refused to pay a bribe for alleged assistance in his appointment to the post of President of the court. “In February 2017 pay-FSB agent tried to give me a package, which, as it turned out, there were 300 thousand rubles. Although I did not take this package and my actions were not even any motive — they tried to accuse me of fraud, and then another, and in receiving a bribe of 230 thousand rubles,” — said Turitsyn.
According to a former judge, his statement about extortion of a bribe is not considered, appeals to the Prosecutor General and the Investigative Committee of Russia are also ignored.
Earlier it was reported that in 2016 in Krasnodar police had detained a man who found a bag with marijuana. During the investigation the man said that he incriminated himself under pressure from police, who promised to reward the guilty plea, as his case would improve them reporting. In court, he recanted his testimony and acknowledged guilt. Turitsyn the judge sentenced him to three years and eight months imprisonment.
Soon the officer of Federal drug control service said the FSB on the Turitsyn, who allegedly extorted a bribe for a guaranteed sentence of a convicted person. The verdict against the men was canceled (then he was arrested again for murder). Turitsyn the lawyer believes that the police slandered the judge, in order to avoid criminal liability for toss and drug fraud case.
