The court is held with the participation of a jury.
The Armenian thief in law amassed a gang in 2006 year. Its main aim was to establish a criminal control over the business of local entrepreneurs, collecting tribute and blatant racket in the style of the 90s. One of the victims of racketeers became Armavir businessman, co-owner of brandy plant CJSC Novokubanskoe Suren Yegiazarov. Kanevsky’s members threatened reprisals against him and his family, demanding a monthly pay of 30 thousand USD (which at that time was about 800 thousand rubles). The businessman had the courage to abandon the requirement of racketeers and thereby signed his own death warrant. It happened in late January 2007 in the cafe, located in the village Trudobelikovskaya, the Krasnoarmeyskiy district. Arriving there, Kanevsky’s members shot a businessman and two of his companions.
The next crime count, which also formed the basis of the criminal case, is the killing of one of the members of the group. In mid-February 2007, in a remote location Kanevsky’s members shot his gang member, who had previously participated in the murder of Suren Yegiazarov.
The group was defeated after the death of its founder - thief in law Armen Harutyunyan. The kingpin, receiving a prison sentence for a serious crime, thundered behind bars. In prison he died from severe diabetes.
Kanevsky’s members did not recognize their guilt in the alleged acts.
