KRASNODAR, October 6 (Itar-Tass) — The Krasnodar Territory Court upheld the verdict for the mother of Sergei Tsapok, a key suspect in the case over the murder of 12 people in the village of Kushchevskaya in November 2010. Tsapok's mother was sentenced to three years for fraud, the press service of the regional prosecutor’s office told Itar-Tass.
"The court upheld the verdict and left it unchanged. It turned down Nadezhda Tsapok's appeal," a prosecutor said.
Nadezhda Tsapok was sentenced to three years in a penal colony and a 500,000-rouble fine on August 18. The second defendant, Nadezhda Vezhlivaya, who was accused of fraud, too, got a 2.5-year suspended sentence.
Nadezhda Tsapok was director of the Arteks-Argo agribusiness. The investigators ascertained that the firm had submitted fake documents to the regional department for agriculture in order to illegally draw over 15 million roubles from the regional and federal budgets.
Her son Sergei, accused of involvement in the mass murder, is in custody.
