Verdict in Autukhovich's case to be delivered on May 6


In his final statement in the Supreme Court Vaukavysk businessmen pled not guilty.

Police Lieutenant Colonel Kazlou asked pardon of Autukhovich and Asipenka for actions of his former collagues.

As "Salidarnasts" was told by the chairman of "Razam" Solidarity movement VYachaslau Siuchyk, at the session of the Supreme Court of April 20 Mikalai Autukhovich was the first to make the final statement, and Alyaksandr Laryn was the last one.

Businessmen from Vaukavysk Mikalai Autukhovich and Uladzimir Asipenka who are charged with terrorist attack preparation against deputy Taxes Minister and former chairman of Hrodna regional executive committee, and with arson of the house of the former head of Vaukavysk police department haven't pled guilty. They stated that the criminal cases were frame-ups and were persecution for an attempt for fighting corruption in Hrodna region.

Police Lieutenant Colonel Kazlou who is charged with knowing about the plans of the terrorist attack and not preventing them asked pardon of Autukhovich and Asipenka for actions of his former collagues. He concretely names the articles of the Criminal Code violated by the investigators.

As said by Siuchyk, statement of Alyaksandr Laryn who was bearing witness against Autukhovich and Asipenka, was not coherent and logical.

The Supreme Court is to deliver verdict in the criminal cases on May 6.

We remind that Prosecutor Eldar Safarau offered to sentence Mikalai Autukhovich to 20 years of imprisonment in a colony with a reinforced regime and seizure of property, Uladzimir Asipenka and Alyaksandr Laryn -- to 11 years in a colony with a reinforced regime; Mikhail Kazlou - to 3 years of colony with a ban to take high positions.
