Father of Balashikha 'drunk boy' demands recusal
Roman Shimko believes that the defendant and representatives of the investigation are criminally connected.
Roman Shimko, the father of the 6-year-old boy who died in an accident in Balashikha, said that he demands removing the judge who dealing with this case. He said this at another session in the Zheleznodorozhny City Court of the Moscow region. Shimko made such a decision as Judge Vladimir Shekun refused to send the case for further investigation, to merge the case with a case on negligence, which was filed due to the discovery of 2.7 ppm of alcohol in the blood of the minor child, which in fact was not there.
The man also reported that the court had rejected a number of motions to summon key witnesses to the hearing.
Roman Shimko deems that there was a criminal conspiracy between the executors of the first examination, defendant Olga Alisova and investigator of the Balashikha Ministry of Internal Affairs Department Dmitry Arinushkin, who initially tried to deny the boy's parents in instituting the case several times.
The tragedy in the Moscow region town of Balashikha really broke into the open. On April 23, Olga Alisova knocked the 6-year-old child to death in a car in the courtyard of an apartment building and dragged the body a few more meters along the road. The woman was detained. Soon, as a result of forensic medical examination, a high alcohol content of 2.7 ppm was found in the boy's blood. A massive public outcry was sparked, based on the fact that this was impossible, however, forensic medical expert of the Moscow Regional Department of the Bureau of Forensic Medical Examination Mikhail Kleymenov tried to prove his case in every possible way. The complex examination carried out for the third time showed that the forensic expert was mistaken, and there was no alcohol in the child's blood. As a result, a criminal case was brought against him for negligence. Investigators of the Main Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee indicted Kleymenov.
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.
