Russian Police Colonel Convicted of Contract Murder

Senior criminal police investigator Colonel Dmitri Maximov was found guilty by a jury of organizing the murder of lawyer Sergey Biryukov and was sentenced by the Moscow City Court to 18 years of imprisonment. In 2008, Maximov received from an “unidentified person” an order to kill Biryukov; via his agents, Maximov found a hitman, who murdered Biryukov in an apartment Maximov normally used to meet his informers. The other murder participants were also convicted and sentenced to 13, 16 and 17 years of imprisonment, respectively.
