Court on Sakhalin left the sentence to the ex-governor Khoroshavin unchanged

The Sakhalin Regional Court rejected the appeal in the case of ex-Governor of the region Alexander Khoroshavin and left the decision of the South Sakhalin City Court unchanged. The former head of the region will go to a strict regime colony for 13 years.

In the appeal, the defenders of Khoroshavin and his former subordinates asked to cancel the conviction and acquit the former governor and two other defendants, but the court did not satisfy these demands.

“The judicial board left the sentence of first instance unchanged, and the appeal was dismissed. Only paragraphs on the employment of state posts for all defendants were excluded from the verdict, ”Svetlana Rybakova, assistant chairman of the Sakhalin Regional Court, told EastRussia.

The court of the Sakhalin region began to consider the appeal of Khoroshavin and his former subordinates in November 2018 of the year. The ex-governor is trying to overturn the sentence handed down in February last year by the city court. Then the ex-head of the region was convicted of accepting bribes and sentenced to 13 years. His former assistant, Andrei Ikramov, received 9,5 years, and ex-deputy Sergey Karepkin - eight years.
