Exec's suit against government for unjust kidnapping prosecution to be heard
MOSCOW, September 7 - RAPSI, Anna Shubina. Former Euroset Deputy Vice President Andrey Yermilov, who was arrested and prosecuted for kidnapping before being eventually acquitted, is set to have his unjust prosecution suit against the government heard on September 21.
Investigators prosecuted Yermilov, his former boss, Euroset Vice President Boris Levin, as well as a number of former Euroset support staff, for kidnapping former Euroset freight agent Andrei Vlaskin.
The Moscow City Court acquitted nine of the suspects, including Yermilov of kidnapping Vlaskin. While the prosecution appealed the acquittals, the Supreme Court denied its appeals.
The Moscow City Court originally ordered the government to compensate Yermilov three million rubles (about $101,670) for the ordeal, but the prosecution appealed the award, arguing that it was excessive. The Supreme Court overruled the award and submitted the issue for reconsideration.
The court was supposed to hear Yermilov's suit earlier, but postponed it because Euroset failed to provide information on Yermilovs salary. The information will be used in calculating his compensation for lost wages due to his arrest and prosecution.
