Another $1.5 million to be collected from Tsapok's gang members
Earlier, the court ruled to pay victims 150 million rubles ($2.2 m) at the expense of the gang leader's inheritance.
The Directorate of the Federal Bailiffs Service of the Russian Federation for Krasnodar Krai will collect another 100 million rubles ($1.5 m) from the convicted members of Tsapkovskaya criminal group in favor of the victims, reports TASS with reference to the acting Head of the Directorate Dmitry Tkachenko.
Earlier, the court ruled to pay victims 150 million rubles ($2.2 m) at the expense of the inheritance of the gang leader Sergey Tsapok. In 2018, over 119 million rubles ($1.7 m) were collected from his mother’s account by a court decision. The remaining amount, 31 million rubles ($467.9 thousand), which were on the account arrested in 2010, was transferred to the victims by Tsapok's widow.
Bailiffs want to recover another 100 million rubles ($1.5 m) from Tsapok's uncle Vyacheslav Ryabtsev. According to Tkachenko, the convict’s property, a part of his money, as well as part of the salary of gang members in the colony were arrested. The press service of the regional Directorate of the Federal Bailiffs Service reported that there are materials on recovery of money in favor of the injured from the accounts of two more gang members - Andrey Bykov and Vladimir Alekseyev.
Ryabtsev's residential house worth 1 million 370 thousand rubles ($20.6 thousand) was transferred for sale, and another bidding was scheduled for February 26, Komsomolskaya Pravda reports. 13 ($196.2) and 67 thousand rubles ($1 thousand) were recovered from Alekseyev and Bykov’s accounts, respectively.
In 2015, seven victims from the actions of the gang were awarded 250 million rubles ($3.7 m) in compensation. The money was intended for Dzhalil Ametov, in whose parents' house Tsapkovskaya gang members initiated a massacre. Compensation for the death of relatives is to be received by Svetlana and Vladimir Srebnys, as well as Andrey and Lyudmila Kasyans, and Viktoria and Sergey Kostyuk.
It concerns entrepreneur Dmitry Motorin, Boris Usherovich, a co-owner of the Group of Companies 1520, and Novoe Vremya board member, Ivan Stankevich. Motorin is accused of giving a bribe on an especially large scale, and Stankevich and Usherovich are charged with bribe-taking.
This week, the judicial debates in the trial of Vladimir Barsukov-Kumarin charged with creation of Tambovskie organized criminal group have been finished in the Kuibyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg. If the court upholds the stance of the state prosecution, the once-influential criminal ‘authority’ may be convicted to almost 25 years behind bars. In reality, this translates into a life term for the legend of criminal St. Petersburg.
