Prosecutor demands 12 years for granddaughter of Yukos insolvency officer
MOSCOW, January 23 (RAPSI) – A prosecutor on Wednesday demanded a 12-year prison term for Maria Rebgun, the granddaughter of a reputable bankruptcy commissioner of Yukos oil company Eduard Rebgun, as part of a case on attempted murder and assault related to robbery, RAPSI reports from Moscow’s Koptevsky District Court.
The prosecutor also asked the court to sentence Vlad Gorbakovsky, a man whom Rebgun allegedly asked to kill a victim, to 12 years in high security prison.
Their sentencing is scheduled for January 24.
According to the prosecution, Rebgun has asked Gorbakovsky to cause bodily harm to her ex-boyfriend and to steal his cellphone for 150,000 rubles ($2,300). Later, the woman changed her plan and asked her accomplice to kill the victim. Investigators claim that Gorbakovsky has attacked Rebgun’s former boyfriend with an axe.
Gorbakovsky pleaded guilty to attempted murder and assault related to robbery while Rebgun denied the charges but admitted negligence.
The victim has filed a civil claim against the defendants seeking to collect a little over 7 million rubles ($106,000) in compensation for treatment and moral harm from them.
