A Moscow court will announce on November 13 the sentences
A Moscow court will announce on November 13 the sentences of several people found guilty of involvement in the murder of a top banking regulator, a court spokeswoman said on Friday.

Central Bank First Deputy Chairman Andrei Kozlov, who oversaw bank licensing and led a campaign against corruption and money laundering, was shot dead along with his driver in September 2006.

On Thursday, the prosecution demanded a life sentence for former banker Alexei Frenkel, found guilty earlier this week of organizing the murder. Kozlov had revoked the licenses of banks run by Frenkel.

The prosecution also demanded a life sentence for the assassin, Alexei Polovinkin, and a 25-year prison term for his accomplice, Maxim Proglyada.

Frenkel has been in custody since January 2007, along with restaurant owner Liana Askerova, whose testimony led to his arrest, and Boris Shafrai, a Ukrainian businessman. Askerova and Shafrai have been found guilty of organizing the murder and prosecutors are demanding 17-year prison terms for them.

The defense earlier said they would appeal the verdict after sentencing.
