Vyacheslav Tsepovyaz fails to claim $477k from ex-wife’s company
The court denied a member of the gang Tsapkov the claim against the company of the former spouse for the use of land.
The Kushchevsky District Court of the Krasnodar region denied in full to satisfy the claim of the sentenced to 20 years in prison Tsapok gang member Vyacheslav Tsepovyaz for the collection of 32 million rubles ($480,000) of rent from his ex-wife’s company for the use of land.
According to TASS, referring to the lawyer of Tsepovyaz's ex-wife Natalya Strishnyaya, Eduard Churguliya, the second lawsuit was partially satisfied by the court, for the amount that the defendant is willing to admit himself.
These decisions were made by the courts on November 29 and 30.
Earlier it was reported that Vyacheslav Tsepovyaz filed to his ex-wife Natalya Strishnyaya lawsuits totaling about 640 million rubles ($9,5 mln), including two lawsuits for collecting rent from OPKh Sila Kubani to 32 million ($480,000) and 9 million rubles ($135,000), respectively. Earlier, the agricultural enterprise belonged to Tsepovyaz, but he sold it, and now Strishnyaya is the owner of Sila Kubani.
Now, according to the lawyer Strishnyaya, Tsepovyaz filed a new lawsuit against the ex-wife for the use of land, but this time the amount of the stated claims amounted to 7 million rubles ($100,000). As part of this lawsuit, a convicted member of the Kushchevskaya organized criminal group, who recently became the hero of a scandal around his special conditions in the colony, will seek the division of land.
Vyacheslav Tsepovyaz in 2013 was sentenced by the Krasnodar Regional Court in the case of Tsapok OCG to 20 years in prison, in 2014 the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation reduced his sentence for two months. On account of the gang there are 19 murders in the village of Kuschevskaya, including the massacre of 12 people.
