Court in Crimea sentenced two «well done» who robbed mosques
The Bakhchisarai District Court of the Republic of Crimea has sentenced two residents of the city of Simferopol for stealing property from mosques in Crimea. One was sentenced to 3 years and 6 months in prison to be served in a penal colony with a strict regime, the other was sentenced to 3 years in prison to be served in a penal colony of general regime.
In the period from January to May 2022, a number of thefts were committed on the territory of the Republic of Crimea from the premises of the mosques of the Centralized Religious Organization of the Spiritual Administration of Muslims of the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol. As established by the investigating authorities, since January 2022, thefts were committed by a resident of the city of Simferopol, born in 1999. Later, the attacker involved his acquaintance, born in 1993, in the commission of crimes. Using a hacking tool, the criminals secretly, deliberately, out of selfish motives, stole money from the donation box in the Crimean mosques— noted in the press service of the court.
Together they acted until May 2022, until the employees of the investigating authorities stopped their criminal actions. The court established more than 35 episodes of thefts from mosques.
At the hearing, the defendants pleaded guilty in full, and repented of their deeds.
The court concluded that the defendants were guilty and that their actions were qualified correctly in all episodes of the crimes committed under Part 2 of Art. 158 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
No civil suits were filed in the case.
The verdict has not entered into force.
