RKP team successfully defends Russian Standard Bank in the administrative case instituted by the Prosecutor's Office
10 december 2019

The team of Rustam Kurmaev & Partners law firm has successfully protected in the 4th Cassation Court of General Jurisdiction interests of Russian Standard Bank JSC in the administrative case instituted by the Prosecutor`s Office under article 19.28(2) of the Code of Administrative Offences of the Russian Federation.

The supervisory instance took into account the lawyers` arguments proving that the actions of their client did not contain elements of the offence it was charged with and reversed all the previous rulings of the lower courts imposing a large penalty on Russian Standard Bank JSC.

This success is essential for law enforcement as in most previous administrative proceedings courts tended to rule against legal entities and individuals accused under the said article 19.28 of the Code of Administrative Offences of the Russian Federation.
