The Prosecutor’s Office asks eight years in jail for Odesa activist Serhiy Sternenko with confiscation of property in old case when he was suspected of the kidnapping of a person to take his money in the sum of 300 hryvnias ($10) as Sternenko reported on Telegram.
“Eight years with confiscation of property for opposition to Trukhanov (Odesa Mayor, - 112.international)…I was suspected in the kidnapping of Shcherbych to take his funds in the sum of 300 hryvnias. Shcherbych is a party man and MP of Doviryai Spravam (Trust actions) and he is controlled by Mayor of Odesa Trukhanov. Trukhanov organized the contract killing of me three times and a number of criminal proceedings were opened for his orders. This is why Shcherbych wrote an application against me,” Sternenko wrote.
The delivery of the sentence will take place on February 19 at Prymorsky Court of Odesa.
Sternenko states that in 2015 he was searched by law enforcers. During the investigative actions he gave them pneumatic gun, collection knife and a starting pistol.
“After the search, they put a sack on my head and transferred me to Organised Crime Division and served charges. The same day I was taken to the remand center,” Sternenko wrote.
He added that Shcherbych did not come to the court during five years of court sessions.
