MOSCOW, January 22. /ITAR-TASS/. The public prosecutor asks for five to six years in prison for defendants in the Bolotnaya riot affair, Itar-Tass reported from the courtroom on Wednesday.
“I ask to sentence defendant Belousov to five years in prison, defendants Krivov and Naumova - six years in prison, Lutskevich, Polikhovich, Barabanov, Zimin and Savelov to 5.5 years in prison,” the public prosecutor at a court session hearing arguments of litigating parties at Zamoskvoretsky court in Moscow.
Their guilt in massive disorder in Bolotnaya Square in Moscow on May 6, 2012, and use of violence against law enforcers was proved in the trial, the public prosecutor believes.
“Correction of defendants is impossible without their isolation from society,” the public prosecutor said. Meanwhile, the public prosecutor asked to take into account that all of them have no previous convictions, are characterized positively at their place of education, work and residence, and some of them raise little children.
Now a break was announced in the court session until 11:30 Moscow time (07:30 GMT) on January 27, when lawyers and defendants will present their arguments, after that the defendants will be granted the right for last plea. Then the court will have deliberations to pronounce a verdict.
