The court determined the composition of the jury.
The Moscow Regional Court resumed the protracted trial of the Turbazovskie OCG. On the eve, the Moscow Regional Court determined the composition of the jury, who will take part in the hearing on the case of a large gang, on the fourth attempt.
The jury will assess the degree of fault of the gang members: Dmitry Lesnyakov, Dmitry Zadkov, Dmitry Mityuklyaev, Vasily Babayev, Alexander Lebedev, Ralif Faizov, Sergey Freer and Idrak Abilov. Between 1999 and 2009, members of the gang committed 40 serious and very serious crimes within Moscow, Chelyabinsk, Rostov, Moscow and Krasnodar regions. In particular, criminals were engaged in fraud, extortion, murder for hire.
Among Turbazovskie on the dock there was former Miass City Manager Victor Ardab'evskiy. He was charged with complicity in banditry and contract killings. According to investigators, in 2005 and 2008, Ardab'evskiy organized two murders in Miass. The victims were Ural businessmen Andrey Sidorov and Pavel Paduchin, the direct orders for killings were performed by Turbazovskie killers. However, the ex-official denies all charges.
As the CrimeRussia previously reported, the South Ural FSB officer was arrested in 2013, when he was driving on his SUV to work in the administration. Ardab'evskiy was immediately transferred to Moscow and imprisoned in the Matrosskya Tishina jail. The criminal case against the former city manager and Turbazovskie was sent to the Moscow Regional Court on 25 September 2015. However, the case was repeatedly returned to the Prosecutor to eliminate the shortcomings and mistakes.
We also recall that, in 2014, the Chelyabinsk Regional Court sentenced the leader of the Turbazovskie Sergey Chashin to 11.5 years in prison in view of his active cooperation with investigators. Despite the active sentencing and unfolded trials, the OCG can not be called defeated. Members of the large gang, which are still at large, are suspected of putting pressure on Miass parliamentarians. In particular, at the end of 2016, an unknown laid funeral wreaths on the deputies cars. Officials and the business community of the city say that now the representative of Turbazovskie in the corridors of Miass's power is previously convicted businessman Vladimir Murashkin.
