Kazayevskie gang members tried to injure themselves in court
The impertinent behaviour was up to obstruct justice.
On December 11, four members of the Kazayevskie gang tried to cover themselves with wounds using plastic pens in the Supreme Court of Tatarstan. As a result of the incident, one of the defendants received minor injuries; other had no signs of damage.
"The four defendants tried to injure themselves in order to obstruct justice. During the trial they tried to cover themselves with wounds using a plastic part of the pen. Three of them did not have any injury, no scratches; one was taken to the emergency room and already returned," Natalia Loseva, the Supreme Court of the Republic of Tatarstan press service head, said
Recall members of the Kazayevskie gang are accused of multiple episodes of grievous and extremely grievous crimes. Since the beginning of the 1990s, the gang has been ‘covering up’ several shops and cafes in Kazan. Bandits regularly intimidated possible witnesses and destroyed evidence. There are 14 episodes of criminal activity, of which 5 are murders. The active members of the criminal gang were detained in 2013, all of them are under arrest, but no one has yet admitted their guilt.
The prosecution requests from 21 to 24 years of imprisonment in a strict regime colony for gang members.
