'Khabarovsk flayflints' to be tried under 4 articles, including animal cruelty
ICR has completed investigation into the criminal case of 'Khabarovsk flayflints'; the final version of indictment will soon be submitted to the court for further consideration on the merits.
Investigative bodies have completed investigation into the high-profile case of 'Khabarovsk flayflints'. Two young sadists and their friend have been charged under four articles of the Russian Criminal Code. All three of them will face trial after becoming familiar with the investigation materials.
According to the Investigative Committee of Russia's official representative Svetlana Petrenko, the persons involved in the scandalous and sensational case have been charged under Robbery, Cruelty to Animals, Public actions expressing obvious disrespect towards society and aimed at offending religious feelings of believers, and Incitement of Hatred or Enmity.
Let us recall that, as previously reported by the CrimeRussia, last summer two sadistic minor friends posted photo and video materials depicting animal abuse in a social network. After the public learned about their 'amusements', the investigating authorities case took on the matter. It turned out that the friends took the animals ‘to good hands,' and then brutally tortured and killed them, recording everything on camera.
During the investigation, one of the defendants actively demonstrated her insanity, thus hoping to avoid prison.
Svetlana Petrenko also added that to date, the investigating authorities have gathered sufficient evidence to support the guilt of those involved in the case. After they become familiar with the investigation materials, the case will be referred to the prosecutor's office for indictment confirmation, and then to the court for consideration on the merits.
A new person turned out to be complicit in the high-profile incident in the center of the Russian capital that involved some thieves in law, mafia bosses and pop stars. It is Magomed Ismailov, the famous MMA fighter.
