Perpetrator of contract killing of Federal Penitentiary Service officer during construction of Kresty-2 sentenced to 9 years in prison
Sadykov fully admitted the guilt and concluded a pre-trial agreement with the investigation.
In St. Petersburg, the court sentenced Sabir Sadykov, who was accused of the murder of FSIN officer Nikolay Chernov, to nine years in a strict regime colony, reports the ICR’s website.
The investigation and the court established that at the end of 2016, the deputy head of the FSIN Department for St. Petersburg, Colonel Sergey Moiseenko, asked Sadykov, 63, to kill the head of the department for technical supervision and operation of the construction sites, Lieutenant-Colonel Nikolay Chernov, in order to conceal “corruption crimes.”
The ICR specified that Moiseenko supervised the construction of the investigative isolator Kresty-2, Chernov was his subordinate, and Sadykov distributed orders during the construction.
Sadykov agreed to kill Chernov and asked the FSIN officer Igor Zakharov, whose position is not disclosed, for help. The latter, in the winter of 2017, handed Sadykov a pistol with a silencer and cartridges.
In March 2017, Sadykov invited Chernov to a personal meeting, after which he fired at the victim not less than seven times in a parked car. Chernov was taken to the hospital, but died from the injuries five days later.
Sadykov fully admitted his guilt, concluded a pre-trial agreement with the investigation and testified against his accomplices. The suspect was found guilty under paragraph “k” of part 2 of Article 105 CCRF (murder for the purpose of concealing another crime or facilitate its commission) and part 1 of Article 222 CCRF (illegal acquisition, transfer, sale, storage, transportation or carrying of weapons, ammunition).
The criminal case of incitement and complicity in the murder in order to conceal another crime and illegal circulation of arms (parts 4 and 5 of Article 33, clause “k” of part 2 of Article 105 and Article 222 CCRF) against Moiseenko and Zakharov were forwarded to the court for consideration.
In addition, Moiseenko is accused of receiving a bribe on an especially large scale (part 6 of Article 290, part 5 of Article 291 CCRF) from the director of the contractor company that built the Kresty-2 pre-trial detention center.
