MOSCOW, December 4 (Itar-Tass) — Former chief of the Tsaritsyno police station Denis Yevsyukov, sentenced to life imprisonment for supermarket massacre, said he was ready to pay damages to the injured parties per ruling by Moscow's Nagatinsky court, but asked not to increase the sum.
stated it in his objections to the complaint by injured parties Ilya Gerasimenko and Luiza Salikhova about the court ruling.
"I'm asking the court to turn down the appeal and uphold the ruling by Moscow's Nagatinsky court dated July 31, 2012. I wish to assure the court that I'm not refusing to pay moral and material damages to the plaintiffs. Also, I'm asking the plaintiffs and their relatives' forgiveness again for the moral and physical sufferings I have caused," Yevskyukov stated.
His statement was carried by the official site of Igor Trunov, a lawyer for the injured parties.
"I believe the court' conclusions on the possibility of compensation in favor of Gerasimenko and Salikhova is quite justified; they meet the circumstances of the case and requirements of the law," Yevsyukov stated.
On July 31, Moscow's Nagatinsky court ruled on a 600,000-rouble compensation for the persons who suffered from the former policeman's actions.
Ilya Gerasimenko is entitled to 350,000 roubles for moral damage, and 19,980 roubles for material damage, while Luiza Salikhova is entitled to 250,000 and 27,000 roubles, respectively.
According to Trunov, the sum of compensations is too small and incomparable with the injuries and moral sufferings caused to the victims. The Moscow City Court is expected to review the injured parties' appeal against this ruling by the district court.
Earlier, the lawyers complained to the qualifying board and the council of judges of Moscow about actions by Nagatinsky court's judge Oleg Roshchin who had reviewed the case. They claimed he had unconscientiously performed his professional duties.
Yevsyukov was sentenced to life for the murder at the Ostrov supermarket in southern Moscow overnight to April 27, 2009. He is serving his sentence in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area.
