MOSCOW, May 17 (Itar-Tass) — The prosecutor for the state demanded ten years in jail for former director of the Bureau for coordinating organized crime fight in countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States. Police Lt-Gen Alexander Bokov is accused of stealing ten million dollars by fraud, the press service of Moscow's Nikulino court told Itar-Tass.
"I'm asking the court to mete out a term to Bokov in a general regime penitentiary and fine him 500,000 roubles," the prosecutor said.
She said the guilt of all the three defendants had been fully proven. Mikhail Kreimer deserves eight years in jail and a 500,000-rouble fine, and Sergei Stepanov - five years in jail. The prosecutor asked to meet the injured party's ten-million-dollar damages claim.
The parties' arguments continued on Wednesday.
Alexander Bokov and his suspected accomplices - director general of the International Cossacks Development Fund Mikhail Kreimer and director general of the Stroibeton company Sergei Stepanov are accused under Article 159, Part 4 /"grand fraud"/.
It was ascertained during preliminary investigation that Bokov, as director of the bureau for coordinating organized crime fight in the territory of CIS states, having learned about a businessman's plans to purchase the Volga oil loading shipping company, used his office position and decided to come in possession of the businessman's funds. Together with Kreimer and Stepanov he told the businessman about his opportunities to help him acquire the shipping company. "As a result, the police General and his accomplices fraudulently came in possession of the funds belonging to the businessman worth over 9.8 million dollars in 2005-2007," an official at the Prosecutor General's Office earlier told Tass.
