Moscow prosecutors Friday lodged new fraud charges against Fail Sadretdinov
Moscow prosecutors Friday lodged new fraud charges against Fail Sadretdinov, acquitted last week in the case of a murdered American journalist, a defense lawyer said. Moscow notary Sadretdinov and two other defendants, Kazbek Dukuzov and Musa Vakhayev, were acquitted of the murder of Paul Klebnikov, a former editor of Forbes Russia magazine, by majority jury verdict May 5 at Moscow City court. Yelena Liptser said Sadretdinov was charged with fraud during registration an apartment deal in 2002. Another lawyer, Ruslan Zakalyuzhny, said the detention of his client was "revenge for the acquittal." Liptser said: "During an interrogation yesterday, Sadretdinov refused to give testimony as he thinks the case was rigged and is illegal." Investigators said Sadretdinov took possession of an apartment in Moscow while using a faked will. Prosecutors in the murder case claimed Dukuzov, Vakhayev and Sadretdinov gunned down Klebnikov on July 9, 2004, on the orders of Chechen businessman Khozh-Akhmed Nukhayev, who wanted revenge after Klebnikov's critical book "Conversations with a Barbarian" featured him as the central figure. Klebnikov, a United States national, had worked for Forbes since 1989 and gained his reputation for investigating murky post-Soviet business dealings and corruption.
