Estonia: Prosecutor likely to appeal in Port of Tallinn bribery case

Estonia’s Harju County Court has acquitted the defendants in a criminal case against the management of the Port of Tallinn due to statute of limitations, ERR reports. The court determined that the accused members of the port’s management board, who were charged with bribery and money laundering, did not act as officials, reclassifying their actions as second-degree crimes with a five-year statute of limitations, which had expired. State prosecutor Maria Entsik indicated that the Prosecutor’s Office would likely appeal the verdict.
