The verdict of the court was heard by the former director of the Yakut airport. The man was found guilty of receiving a bribe on an especially large scale. He will spend the next nine years in a maximum security colony.

According to investigators, the ex-leader for several years extorted bribes from entrepreneurs for the opportunity to freely conduct commercial activities at the Yakutsk airport. In total, he received 14 million rubles. In addition to imprisonment, the court imposed a fine of 10 million rubles.

The defendant did not admit his guilt. As reported Sakha news, at the court, the man said that he received the money legally and spent it on good for the city goals - to repair roads and sidewalks, support gifted schoolchildren and students, and help orphans. However, according to the prosecution, these actions were dictated by the desire of the former director to become a people's deputy of the republic. Ahead, men have 10 days to appeal the verdict.
