MOSCOW, December 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The Lyublino court in Moscow sentenced Friday businessman from the Volga river city of Naberezhnye Chelny Pavel Sopot to seven years in high security prison for masterminding an attack on journalist of Novaya Gazeta newspaper Igor Domnikov.
The court has found Sopot guilty of masterminding an attack, in which the journalist was killed due to a heavy bodily damage.
During the court proceedings the public prosecutor asked to sentence Sopot to eight years in high security prison. Meanwhile, the public prosecutor has supported the lawsuit, which Domnikov’s widow had filed to claim for 10 million roubles (about $303.4 thousand). The businessman pled not guilty at the trial.
The perpetrators of the attack were previously sentenced to long terms in prison.
Domnikov was attacked on May 12, 2000. The bandits have beaten the journalist to death by the hammers.
