Smuggler is sentenced to 3 years of imprisonment


The sentence of Uzhgorod Municipal Regional Court gained its legal validity concerning the citizen of Ukraine, who organized the illegal cross of the citizen of Russian Federation of the state border in 2007 during which her three children died.

For a long time the violator absconded from the inquest. In 2011, SSU officers detained this citizen of Ukraine.

In 2007, the family of Dzhamaldin intended to depart to European Union. As the native of Caucasus could not get legally abroad, so they decided to do it in illegal way. In September of the same year, the family arrived to Transcarpathia.

Already former border guard agreed to organize illegal cross of Ukrainian-Slovakian state border for the woman and her four children for the sum of $2700.

On agreed day the malefactors took the woman, her three daughters and a son from temporary building to the border and had to smuggle illegal migrants to the nearest Slovakian populated area. But the guides brought the woman to the village of Zhornava, Velykyi Bereznyi region, pointed her way through the mountainous wooden locality as if there was Slovakia, and left Kamisa with children to the mercy of fate.

For some days she had been wondering in the wood, where her daughter (6, 10 and 12 years old) died of exposure. In the end, the woman and her three-year-old son got to PolishRepublic.

When organizer learned about the tragedy – he recovered money to Kasima’s husband and fled.

Uzhgorod Municipal Regional Court qualified his action according to Part 2 Article 332 of Crime Code of Ukraine as “organization of illegal transportation of persons through the state border of Ukraine, guide for such actions on preliminary agreement by the group of persons” and sentenced the former border guard to 3 years’ imprisonment.

His malefactors were condemned before on different terms of imprisonment.
