Defence demands to increase compensation to Ibragimov for persecution

The advocate has challenged the amount of compensation awarded by the court in Makhachkala to Sultankhan Ibragimov, who was acquitted after accusation of two murders.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on January 11, 2018, the Supreme Court (SC) of Russia upheld the acquittal of Sultankhan Ibragimov, a resident of Makhachkala, in the murder case of Nazim Gadjiev, the leader of the "Sadval" movement, and Alisultan Omarov, a coach in Greco-Roman wrestling. The court in Makhachkala has obliged the Russia's Ministry of Finance to pay Ibragimov 800,000 roubles in compensation. However, in the claim, Ibragimov estimated the moral damage caused to him at 5 million roubles.

The ruling of the Sovietsky District Court of Makhachkala on the compensation amount in favour of Ibragimov was appealed against on August 15, his advocate Shamil Magomedov told the "Caucasian Knot". According to his version, he and his client disagree with the awarded amount – they demand 2000 roubles for each day Ibragimov spent in custody.

He was under arrest for more than 19 months or 575 days, which means that the compensation amount should be increased to 1,150,000 roubles.
