SINGAPORE, April 13. /TASS/. Two Russian nationals have been handed prison sentences for scamming Singapore’s casinos, Vadim Savin, head of the Russian Embassy’s Consular Section, told TASS on Thursday.
According to Savin, "Vladislav Logachyov, 41, was sentenced to 45 months in prison, while his accomplice Andrei Yegorov, aged 33, got 30 months." The embassy’s representatives are closely following the case’s developments and have repeatedly met with the defendants," the diplomat noted. "The defense attorneys also said that they will appeal the verdict," Savin added.
Last year, a guilty verdict was handed down to a third member of the crime ring, 41-year-old Czech national Radoslav Skubnik who was sentenced to 22 months behind bars. According to the law enforcement agencies, last May they were able to pocket about $77,000 in winnings from two casinos’ slot machines by using various fraud schemes.
According to Singapore’s legislation, penalties for such crimes can result in 7 years in prison and a $107,000 fine.
