Tatiana Ovsiyenko can safely exhale. Her beloved man does not face jail. Yesterday Alexander Merkulov was sentenced to four years imprisonment, but the businessman was released just in the courtroom.
Recall that Tatiana was waiting for a lover, and according to some of the groom, from prison three and a half years. He was detained on suspicion in the assassination of Sergei Vasiliev, the owner JSC “Petersburg oil terminal”, which was committed ten years ago. During the investigation it turned out that the man is innocent and he was released.
Happiness Tatiana and Alexander knew no bounds, they even decided to get married, but the joy was short-lived: the police returned the case to the court, stating that Merkulov bribed the jury. From the indictment, the investigators removed the charges of attempted murder, leaving only his organization.
Despite the fact that the court found the man guilty, it was released in the courtroom because of time he already served. Workers of the order went to jail for 10, 20 and 23 years old.
