MOSCOW, October 13 (Itar-Tass) — Russia's Supreme Court on Thursday reaffirmed the legality of a court sentence to a former member of the upper house of parliament, Vladimir Izmestyev, who was sentenced for life for contract murders, terrorism and other heinous crimes.
Izmestyev represented the region of Bashkortostan in the Federation Council, the upper house.
By reaffirming the sentence, the Supreme Court turned down a cassation of the defenders who asked for overruling the sentence and annulling the criminal case due to Izmestyev's non-involvement in the crimes he was accused of.
The sentence has taken legal effect.
