Suleyman Barbakadze was sentenced by the town court of Akhaltsikhe to 11 years of imprisonment, a fine of 30 thousand laris and the payment of 10 thousand dollars as material compensation and 3 thousand laris as moral compensation to the claimants who accused Barbakadze of fraud. The attorney is going to appeal against the awarded sentence.
He was charged with buying a house from a citizen of Georgia Georgy Tumasyan at a lowered price in the town of Akhaltsikhe.
According to Tumasyan, in exchange, Barbakadze promised to obtain Russian citizenship for him and find him a job in RF. Having received no citizenship, Tumasyan applied to the law-enforcement authorities, stating Barbakadze's fraudulent behaviour.
According to attorney Leri Katamadze who represented Barbakadze's interests in court, the guilt of his client has not been proven.
