VLADIVOSTOK, March 30 (Itar-Tass) — A group of “black lumbermen” and policemen who covered them will stand trial in the Primorsky Territory. Senior aide to the head of the regional investigation department of the Russian Investigative Committee (SK) Avrora Rimskaya told Itar-Tass that the investigation has collected sufficient evidence and the criminal case with the approved indictment on Friday was sent to court for consideration on the merits.
According to investigators, in the spring of 2011, a group of people - five men, was engaged in illegal logging in the Chuguyevsky district of the territory, inflicting damage on the state worth more than 14 million roubles. The poachers worked safely under the protection of two police officers.
Earlier, the organiser of the crime with whom a pre-trial agreement had been concluded, was convicted. The court sentenced him to 2 years imprisonment.
