DONETSK, June 16. /TASS/. The translated text of the court verdict has been handed over to the British and Moroccan mercenaries who were sentenced to capital punishment in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), a spokesman for the DPR Supreme Court told TASS on Thursday.
"They have received the full text of the verdict, which was translated for them in compliance with law," he said.
On June 9, a DPR sentenced two British nationals, Shaun Pinner and Aiden Aslin, as well as Moroccan Brahim Saadoun to capital punishment for fighting in the Ukrainian army as mercenaries. They were captured in Donbass.
According to Pavel Kosovan, a defense lawyer, they will have 30 days to challenge the verdict.
The DPR prosecutor general’s office said earlier that Pinner’s, Aslin’s, and Saadoun’s testimonies indicated their involvement in crimes under part 2, article 34 of the DPR Criminal Code (crimes committed by a group of individuals), article 323 (seizure of power or holding pf power by force), and article 430 (mercenary activities).
