Supreme Court upheld verdict of Stroymaterialovskie OCG killer
The Russian Supreme Court did not change the verdict against participant of the Tatarstan OCG Stroymaterialovskie Ilnar Zakirov. He was jailed for 10 years in a strict-regime colony.
The Judicial Collegium for Criminal Cases of the Supreme Court of Russia upheld the verdict of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Tatarstan against Ilnar Zakirov, one of the participants in the Stroymaterialovskie organized criminal group. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison, but tried to appeal the verdict.
The Tatarstan Court recognized 33-year-old Zakirov as guilty of killing two persons, sentencing him to 10 years in a strict regime penal colony.
The court found that Zakirov and other members of the organized crime group killed two guards of the TsKZH nightclub in July 2004. The sentence to Zakirov is chronologically the last among the court's decisions with regard to members of the notorious OCG.
In April 2016, 8 of his accomplices, among whom was one of the leaders Damir Gabdrakhmanov, received various terms of imprisonment, totaling about 115 years. The defendants were found guilty of Murder (Article 105 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) and Ammunition Trafficking (Article 222).
The local Penitentiary Service firmly refused to call what happened in Novosibirsk IK-14 a riot, despite the Investigative Committee initiated a criminal case about it and there is a video proof online.
