Donetsk region: SBU materials help to convict one of organizers of pseudo-referendum
SBU materials help to convict one of the organizers of the 2014 pseudo-referendum in Donetsk region.
The SBU operatives established that in April 2014, a resident of Kramatorsk voluntarily joined the “action group” involved in organizing and holding the illegal referendum; she also took charge of the local “election committee”.
In May 2014, the offender distributed the “ballots”, compiled the so-called “voter registers” and “protocols”; she also allocated the duties among other organizers of the pseudo-referendum.
During the sanctioned investigative actions conducted in the criminals’ residence, the officers seized documents, means of communication and other material evidence proving her illegal activity.
The Criminal Court of Kramatorsk found the offender guilty of committing a crime stipulated by Part 2 Art. 110 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The Court of Appeal of Donetsk left the decision of the court of first instance unchanged.
The sentence came into force.
