NIZHNY NOVGOROD, September 14 /TASS/. Prosecutors dropped criminal charges initiated against a cafe employee in Nizhny Novgorod for humiliating the human dignity of the sister of famous fashion model Natalia Vodianova after the parties had reached reconciliation on Monday," a court source told TASS.
"A pre-trial hearing of a criminal case initiated against Akhmed Bairamov accused of humiliating the human dignity (of a young woman because of her disability) took place today. The prosecution was dismissed after reconciliation of the parties," the court said.
