Court released Mara Bagdasaryan
The street racer’s case is returned to bailiffs.
The infamous violator of traffic regulations Mara Bagdasaryan is released from the courtroom, the correspondent of Life reports. The administrative case within which the street racer was detained, is returned to the Federal Bailiff Service because of the incompleteness of data.
As the CrimeRussia reported earlier, the girl was detained in Moscow for skipping corrective works. In court Bagdasaryan’s lawyer David Kemularia declared that his client missed the work for a valid reason: “Mara Bagdasaryan did not skip public works. She left for an hour to get some medicine,” the lawyer told.
To recall, the street racer became known to the general public after the ‘race’ which took place in May 2016. Then an elite Mercedes-Benz Gelandewagen car was escaping from a pursuit of traffic police cars for several hours across Moscow, creating emergencies. Moreover, the driver and passengers of the car broadcasted the race online in Periscope. Besides Bagdasaryan, in the car, there were the owner of Gelandewagen, son of the vice-president of Lukoil Ruslan Shamsuarov and his friends - Abduvakhob Majidov and Victor Uskov. The court found young people guilty and sentenced Shamsuarov, Uskov and Bagdasaryan to corrective works. Also, Bagdasaryan had to deduct 15% of her salary in favor of the state as a penalty for use of a counterfeit sick list.
In March 2017 the racer’s driving license was revoked for life. This happened because her lawyer Kemularia provided to court a certificate of a number of Bagdasaryan’s diseases and injuries (including epilepsy) which allegedly did not allow her to be engaged in public works. At that time the sum of her unpaid penalties exceeded 200 thousand rubles ($3362).
The street racer was unhappy with the disqualification, because of that together with her father and her lawyer she held a press conference. During the conference, Bagdasaryan was offending journalists, and Kemularia denied information on epilepsy provided by himself.
Saburova believes that the Russian authorities violated articles 2 and 5 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, guaranteeing the right to life, as well as the right to freedom and personal inviolability.
