Gelandewagen races participant released prematurely
22-year-old Abduvakhob Madjidov arrested by court on November 1 for driving without a license has been released.
According to Life, he was arrested for 15 days and served only 10, since the court agreed to release the young man earlier in response to the lawyer's appeal.
It is reported that the court had reviewed two episodes – the ones which had taken place on Novy Arbat and Znamenka Street. According to Madjidov's lawyer, the court consolidated two terms under similar offenses and accounted for the fact they were delivered one after the other, and the first one has not yet taken effect.
Madjidov is one of the three defendants fully justified in the case of Gelandewagen races. His companions, Ruslan Shamsuarov and Viktor Uskov, have been sentenced to three hundred hours of community service. However, soon after the trial, Madjidov was arrested for driving without a license on Novy Arbat, riding along the special vehicles lane without a safety belt. When asked to provide driver's license, he showed his brother's license.
Ismail Efendiev is suspected of exceeding authority in connection with the investigation of cases of detained earlier former First Deputy Prime Minister Ramazan Aliyev and nephew of the former head of Dagestan Askhabali Abdulatipov. Searches are being conducted at Efendiev's office and house.
The disappearance of an elderly Muscovite, who owns three rooms on Ostozhenka Street, and her disabled son, worried the neighbors, but the police refused to initiate criminal proceedings on their application. Housing in the elite area of the capital in the meantime was re-registered to a resident of St. Petersburg, who introduced herself as their relative.
