    The GenProsecution is unsatisfied with the decision made for Alexey Pichugin  in its view, 24 years are not enough | 31 Aug 2006

    The GenProsecution appealed the decision upon Alexey Pichugin  on the 17th of August Moscow State Court sentenced him to 24 years of imprisonment.

    As it was made known to the lawyer of Pichugin Kseniya Kostromina, the prosecutors appealed against this verdict considering it too indulgent.

    Meanwhile, the representatives of defence are sure as before that the process was political. As another lawyer of Pichugin Dmitriy Kurepin stated in broadcast, this is evident from the entire process of the investigation and trial. Regarding the rest of the defendants, the prosecution does not have any pretensions to them. They got different sentences  from 7,5 years up to 19 years of colony of strict regime.

    Dmitriy Kurepin: „The prosecution side was interested all of the above in the witnesses present in the hearing room but not in the commitment of this crime by „YUKOS“ as a legal entity. But is „YUKOS“ not guilty in these crimes? Forgetting for a moment, that under the criminal legislation of Russian Federation a legal entity may not be the subject of the crime, i.e. does not bear any criminal responsibility. Behind each case there are specific natural persons, and in this case, the creation of some criminal image of „YUKOS“ was obvious, but it was mostly vivid in the fact that as a tool for reaching this result planned by the public prosecution was chosen our defendant Alexey Pichugin. This is my opinion and the belief and conviction of my colleagues“.
