The court overturned the verdict of treason against an entrepreneur from the Yaroslavl region who sold engines for military equipment on Avito

On November 29, the First Court of Appeal of General Jurisdiction overturned the conviction of businessman from the Yaroslavl region Rovshan Namazov in the case of high treason (Article 275 of the Criminal Code) and smuggling (Article 226.1 of the Criminal Code). Mediazona was told about this by the court’s press service.

On September 8, the Yaroslavl Regional Court sentenced Namazov to 13 years in a maximum security colony and two years of restriction of freedom. This verdict was not previously reported. The appeal court overturned the verdict due to a “significant violation of the criminal procedure law.” The case was sent for a new trial.

According to data on the websites of the appellate courts, which were analyzed by Mediazona, this is the first case in at least the last five years when a conviction for treason was overturned and the case was sent for review.

Namazov is accused of high treason and two counts of smuggling: preparation for smuggling by an organized group (Part 1 of Article 30, Part 3 of Article 226.1 of the Criminal Code) and smuggling by an organized group (Part 3 of Article 226.1 of the Criminal Code). What exactly, according to investigators, Namazov was transporting is not specified.
