Russian Supreme Court upholds Bekov verdict in Sagra riots case
Bekov was originally convicted of participating in the Sagra riots by a regional court this July, after being detained in Ingushetia and extradited to Yekaterinburg in July 2012, ITAR-TASS reports.
On July 1, 2011, Bekov and approximately 30 others allgedly descended on Sagra with pistols, baseball bats, metal rods and other weapons under the instruction of known mobster Ivan Lebedev. One 28-year-old Yekaterinburg resident was killed in the attack.
Earlier this month, attorneys representing parties who were injured as a result of the 2011 Sagra riots brought Bekov's case to the Russian Supreme Court under complaint that Bekov's sentence of one year and three months in prison was too lenient. In total, 24 defendants were tried and sentenced for their participation in the riots, according to ITAR-TASS.
