“During the hearings of the criminal case against Tashbayev the Tatar prosecutor asked life imprisonment for the defendant. The court satisfied his request,” the press secretary of the court said.

On July 12, the jury of 12 jurors has passed the guilty verdict in the criminal case against Tashbayev. The jurors voted unanimously to find him guilty on all episodes of the accusation against him.
