Supreme Court upholds verdict to Giorgi Guev
Today, the cassation court has dismissed an appeal against the verdict to Giorgi Guev, a resident of North Ossetia, who was sentenced to six years of imprisonment on the charge of financing terrorism.
The “Caucasian Knot” has reported that on November 20, 2020, in Moscow, the military court found Giorgi Guev guilty of financing terrorism and sentenced him to six years of imprisonment in a common-security penal colony.
