Urmas Kõrgesaar and Tambet Laasik successfully defended former municipality governor
Tartu District Court in their 21.05.2018 judgment found former governor of Tartu municipality, Aivar Soop, not guilty in the accusation of corruption and misuse of municipality assets. While the Tartu County Court took a stand that the guilt of A. Soop had been fully proven, district court established that the conclusions had been made against material and procedural law, and annulled the judgment of the county court in all points. Aivar Soop was defended in the proceeding by senior associates Urmas Kõrgesaar and Tambet Laasik of the LEADELL Pilv Law Office.
The Prosecutor’s Office can appeal the judgment to the Supreme Court within 30 days.
