Kyrgyz thief in law Sakal sentenced to 17 years for murder of Kolbaev's OCG member
The court found him a main customer of the crime boss Damir Saparbekov’s murder.
The Bishkek Pervomaisky District Court announced the verdict to organizers of Kamchia Kolbaev’s OCG (Kolya Kyrgyz) member’s murder - Damir Saparbekov (Danke).
In April last year he was shot dead near his home in the capital of Kyrgyzstan. Soon, one of the killer, 25-year-old Adilet Kazakov, was detained. At the moment, he is already serving a 14-year term. Another suspect, Kairat Tokushev, is on the run.
The organizer of the murder was found Ulan Toktosunov, known in the criminal world under nickname Sakal. He is sentenced to 17 years of strict regime penal colony. A member of his gang, Zyparbek Aliev, who, according to the prosecution, is named in a case as an accomplice, is sentenced to 18 years in prison. One of their co-defendants, Dastan Tashtanbekov, is sentenced to 4 years in a penal settlement.
The lawyers have already announced that they intend to appeal this decision to a higher court.
In addition, at a separate hearing of civil procedure it will be decided on the compensation for moral and material damage to Saparbekov’s family. The lawsuit was filed to the value of 1.2 million soms (a little more than 1 million rubles).
Toktosunov was declared wanted in May 2015. In December, he returned to his homeland on his own. Arriving in Bishkek with flight from Moscow, he turned himself in to the airport's police. In the absence of his opponent in the Republic, thief Kolya Kyrgyz, Sakal apparently decided to take his place and desire to get into the pre-trial detention center № 1, from which all the prisoners of local prisons are controlled. However, the court decided to transfer Toktosunov to the detention center № 24 in the south of the Republic.
However, during one of the hearings, Sakal made it clear that he did not pretend to the title of thief in law saying that he did not even know the meaning, adding that he "is not the king to be crowned".
Earlier, Toktosunov was repeatedly prosecuted: three times for disorderly conduct, as well as under Criminal Code articles - Avoidance of Relatives’ Obligations and Non-Execution of the Court Verdict, Judgment or Other Judicial Act.
