What is said in the sentence

Wine speaker in the Commission receiving a bribe by the official in especially large size (article 290 of the criminal code) is established and proven, the court decided, given the nature of the crime and public danger of the correction defendant can only be punished with imprisonment.

The speaker took the bribe personally, being an officer, says the decision of the judge of the Zamoskvoretsky court of Moscow of Larissa Semenova. He realized that without his decision would not be a transaction for the sale of “Bashneft”, “Rosneft”, so decided to “use the authority of his office” and demanded that Sechin bribe during the BRICS summit in Goa. Ulyukayev threatened to further disrupt the activities of “Rosneft” in case of refusal, it is said in the sentence.

“Deliberately, knowing the consequences of their actions, illegally demanded that Sechin funds in the amount of 2 million US dollars” , – said in the verdict.

Sechin has agreed to the demand.

Then the judge began to describe the circumstances of the offence with which the accused former Minister. The speaker in a telephone conversation with Sechin 14 November 2016 confirmed the intention to get a bribe, was read by the judge.

Being in a garage box at the office of “Rosneft” on October 28, the speaker in the framework of the operational activities received a bribe in especially large size for actions within its authority. The money was placed in the trunk of a car speaker, where they found the FSB, said the court’s decision.

Further the judge told the position of the speaker: he is not guilty, the money is not extorted. Sechin himself persistently called him to the office of “Rosneft” and handed them the bag he put in the car “mechanically”.

The judge in this case recalled that the speaker publicly said that “Rosneft” is not an appropriate purchaser of shares of “Bashneft”. “Despite a plea of not guilty, the fault of the speaker of bribery supported by a set of collected on the case evidence,” she said.

Statement on speaker Sechin told me to write an FSB General Oleg Feoktistov, who headed the security service of the oil company said in a sentence. Feoktistov was in the office when Sechin was on the phone with Ulyukaev and then “poured” key from a bag in his jacket pocket Sechin outlined the version of the investigation, the judge Semenov.

During the inspection of the scene the speaker made a comment that the bag received from Sechin and thought it a gift of good wine.

Then the judge began to read the testimony of all witnesses speaking at the trial, but not completely, and in a shortened version, presenting the crux of the matter. She then listed the evidence from the criminal case — disks with records of the meeting and conversation of the speaker and Sechin.

Arguments showing signs of mounting in these records, protection is not given, the court decided. Signs of provocative behaviour Sechin, the court did not consider. The version of the defendant about the fault, which could be in the bag instead of money, the judge found a way to avoid punishment, other evidence refutes this version, she decided.
