MOSCOW, May 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Prosecution has demanded life imprisonment for Lom-Ali Gaitukayev, whom jurors found guilty of masterminding the murder of Novaya Gazeta observer Anna Politkovskaya.
The prosecutor also demanded life imprisonment for Rustam Makhmudov confirmed as perpetrator by the jury.
Ibragim Makhmudov was the only defendant who deserves leniency, jurors said. The prosecutor asked to sentence him to 15 years in a maximum security penitentiary.
The prosecutor demanded 22 years for Sergei Khadzhikurbanov and 19 years for Dzhabrail Makhmudov. He asked the court to meet the victims' five-million-ruble damages suit.
On May 20, a majority of jurors passed a guilty verdict for all the defendants saying a majority did not deserve clemency.
Politkovskaya was killed in the elevator at her house on October 7, 2006.
