MOSCOW, September 7 (RAPSI) – Moscow’s Izmailovsky District Court passed a 1.5-year suspended sentence on lawyer Alexander Maslov for giving a 50,000-ruble (about $700 at the current exchange rate) bribe to a court bailiff, RAPSI learnt from the city Prosecutor’s Office on Monday.

Additionaly, the defendant was ordered to 1.5-year probation after release.

Maslov attempted to get relief from temporal restrictions on departure from the country. On June 20, 2019, he gave the bailiff the money in order to suspend execution proceedings and let him leave Russia, the statement reads.

When he transferred the bribe he was arrested as part of the law enforcement intelligence-gathering activities.
