Remember that at the age of 22, Fathullah was convicted of the attempted murder of three girls, and several villagers testified against him. He spent 13 years in prison. And after his release, he began to search for the truth, devoting his life to this. On May 23, 2023, the Russian Supreme Court acquitted Fatkhulla Iskhakov.
Initially, the pensioner did not plan to file a claim for compensation for non-material damage, but later changed his mind.
– People who imprisoned innocent people should be punished by the state without mercy. But for this, a sentence review mechanism should work when there is the slightest reason to suspect that the crime was committed by another. In the case of Fathulla Iskhakov, it will not be possible to punish the guilty. All counterfeiters are dead. But Bashkortostan’s sitting judges and prosecutors for the past 10 years have steadfastly prevented a review of the verdict. While they were idle, a man died, who in 2013 came with a confession and confessed to the crime. Therefore, Fatkhulla Iskhakov filed a lawsuit today, estimating his suffering at 450 million rubles, Vitaly Burkin noted.
