MOSCOW, December 03, 16:42 /ITAR-TASS/. The lawyers for the three defendants who were sentenced to long prison terms for conspiracy against Bolshoi ballet choreographer Sergei Filin, will appeal the verdict at Moscow city court, one of the lawyers, Sergei Kadyrov, told Itar-Tass on Tuesday."We will appeal the verdict; we hope that the Appeals Panel of the Moscow city court will check the verdict and repeal it," the lawyer said.
On Tuesday, the Moscow Meshchansky district court announced the verdict to the three defendants in the case. Principal ballet dancer of Bolshoi ballet Pavel Dmitrichenko was recognized a culprit who organized the crime and was sentenced to six years in a maximum security prison; Yuri Zarutsky, who has a previous conviction for a hazardous crime, has been sentenced to ten years in a penal colony with a special regime, and Andrei Lipatov, who had driven Zarutsky to the crime scene, was sentenced to four years in a maximum security prison.
At least 100 journalists, relatives of the defendants and members of the Bolshoi theater company watched the trial. Filin was not in the courtroom, undergoing treatment in Germany.
It took the judge around three hours to read out the verdict.
The choreographer was attacked near his apartment building at Troitskaya street in Moscow on January 17. The assailant threw acid into the victim's face, burning his eyes in the incident and requiring surgery in Russia and Germany. Doctors say he will need six more months to convalesce.
