MOSCOW, August 9 (Itar-Tass) — The Moscow City Court on Thursday sentenced to life imprisonment Vladimir Golban, 50, accused of masterminding the murder of Magadan region governor Valentin Tsvetkov in Moscow in 2002.
The court took into account Golban's earlier criminal convictions.
The second defendant, Sergei Filippenko, 42, was sentenced to eight years in a maximum security penitentiary.
Earlier, a panel of jurors found both defendants guilty, saying the evidence against them proved their involvement in organizing Tsvetkov's murder.
The investigator said Golban, in August 2002, took the contract to murder Tsvetkov for a remuneration of 100,000 U.S. dollars. He set up a criminal group which included Filippenko and other persons.
