The Supreme Court today rejected an appeal by Anders Tsahkna, a former deputy mayor of Tallinn and former adviser to the minister of social affairs. Tsahkna was convicted of document falsification in early 2013.

 

Tsahkna was convicted by the Tallinn District Court in January 2013, receiving a four-month suspended prison sentence and with the rejection of his appeal, the sentence entered into force, uudised.err.ee reported.

Tsahkna’s sentence was also appealed by the state prosecutor, who applied for a conviction of large-scale bribe-taking and a suspended sentence of one year and four months with a three-year probation. The prosecutor’s appeal was rejected by the Supreme Court.

The court upheld the 5,000-euro fine issued by Harju County Court to Tsahkna’s company, Balti Radiodiagnostik OÜ.

Tsahkna has previously been tied up in several other influence peddling charges. He formally left the Reform Party today.
