12485.jpegFormer Chairman of the International Turks-Meskhetins Repatriation Foundation who was accused of fraud has been sentenced to 11 years of imprisonment and fines, Kavkazski Uzel reports.


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.
