Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept.9. / Trend H.Bagirov /
The trial on a Baku resident, Akif Azizov, who misappropriated a large sum of money from a group of people under the pretext of employment in the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) was launched.
Azizov is accused of the Article 178.3.2 (swindle with causing damage in the large size) of the Azerbaijani Criminal Code, the Serious Crimes Court told Trend .
Last year, Azizov has misappropriated money from Baku residents Arif Jabiyev, Nizami Guliyev, Rustam Guliyev and Mammad Mammadov ($21,000 from each), under the pretext of employment in SOCAR.
The accused misappropriated $4,000 from the resident of Baku, Rana Ismayilova, by promising her to employ her daughter as a nurse in a hospital and her son to a profitable job.
Azimov was arrested as a result of operational search activities, according to a complaint received by the Nizami District Police Department.
Azimov partially plead himself guilty in his testimony, saying that in exchange for the money, he wanted to employ these persons.
The defendant said that he wanted to return the assigned money, but his arrest prevents this.
