As we have previously reported, according to Sergey Nikonorov, who had served a sentence in Penal Colony No.11 before, head of this penal institution Filyus Khusainov used threats and creating unbearable conditions to force him and other convicts to perform construction works at his summer cottage.

In the proceedings, evaluating the results of the investigation, the state prosecutor said that the defendant’s guilt is completely proven and asked the court to sentence him to 5 years prison term in the standard regime penal colony. In addition, the prosecutor thought it necessary to apply additional punishment: deprivation of the rank of Major and of the right to hold public office within three years. 

In his turn, defendant Khusainov admitted his guilt, but only partially, denying his guilt in the part of using a fire-arm for the purpose of the victim Nikanorov intimidation.

«However, the prosecutor insisted that Khusainov using fire-arm during committing the crime is proven by the cumulative evidence. In particular, the victim precisely described the appearance of the gun before the traumatic weapon was seized in the course of the search in the Khusainov’s apartment. In addition, witness S., who was refurbishing the internal premises of a country house, stated that he heard a loud bang during Khusainov’s visit to the construction site. A dent on the stainless steel sheet of the fencing, which, according to the expert examination, could be made by the bullet fired from a traumatic gun, completes the picture», – member of the Committee for Prevention of Torture Vyacheslav Dyundin, representing the interests of victim Sergey Nikanorov in court, reports.
 
Victim Sergey Nikanorov, at the present time residing in the Moscow region, voiced his opinion in the proceedings via his representative. Agreeing with the prosecutor, he stated that leniency towards the defendant was not possible and asked to impose a punishment with maximum possible prison term. 

In the course of today’s court session the defendant’s solicitor finished his speech in the proceedings, Philyus Khusainov also pronounced his final statement. After that the court went in the jury-room for passing of sentence. 

As a result, the announcement of the verdict is scheduled for 29 April 2016. Start at 15.00.
