On 13 December 2010 the Buguruslan city court (Orenburg region) proclaimed the verdict under the case against two police officers from the Buguruslan District Department of Internal Affairs accused of beating Vasiliy Lyamov, resident of Aksakovo (Orenburg region), on 19 December 2005, which had caused his death.
One of the defendants – lieutenant-colonel Valery Prytkov- was found guilty under cl. «а», «b», «c» p. 3 art. 286 of the RF Criminal Code (“actions of state agents clearly exceeding their official powers and causing substantial violations of individual rights and legal interests committed with violent treatment, application of special tools and causing grave damage to health) and sentenced to five years of imprisonment in a standard security penal colony. The second defendant – senior sergeant Sergey Abrashin – was acquitted for the lack of corpus delicti in his conduct.
The court obliged Prytkov to pay 150 000 rubles to the victim’s sister – Ms. Maslova – as compensation of moral damage.
