UFA, November 13 (Itar-Tass) — A criminal panel of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Bashkortostan on Tuesday overturned the not guilty verdict for former Prime Minister of the republic Rail Sarbayev passed by the Kirov district court of Ufa earlier this year.
The court thereby met the prosecutor's petition. The former premier had been accused of squandering property entrusted to him.
The case has been sent for retrial.
In 2010, the regional department of the Federal Security Service /FSB/ passed materials to investigators confirming the prime minister's trip to Vienna on personal business on a private plane in December 2009. He paid 1.6 million roubles for the trip from the regional budget.
On July 27, the Kirov district court chaired by Munir Valeyev passed a not-guilty verdict for Sarbayev. The prosecutors challenged the verdict as too soft. They had demanded two years in prison for the former regional premier and a one-million-rouble fine.
"On November 9, the qualifying board of Bashkortostan judges has disciplined Valeyev by terminating his authority as judge and chairman of the Kirov district court and stripping him of 3rd qualification class," the press service of the Supreme Court said.
