Gubasaryan’s car fleet arrested after Rosgvardiya officer killed on his Mercedes
The seized cars will be used to repay damages to the victim’s family.
Karen Gubasaryan’s car fleet has been arrested after Rosgvardiya (National Guard of Russia) officer Yuri Karpov got killed on his Mercedes in downtown Moscow. Karen Gubasaryan is now on the wanted list. This way the court granted the request by the victim’s family.
"The Mercedes has been arrested, now the car is at a car impound. It has been dusted for fingerprints. Two other cars belonging to Gubasaryan are searched for, and are going to be seized too," lawyer Georgy Varakin told Life.
The lawyer also said that he had sent a request for the arrest of Gubasaryan’s real estate. The assets seized can be used to repay the damages the victims are suing for.
As previously reported by the CrimeRussia, on December 13, 2016 Mercedes G 63 AMG lost control and got onto the sidewalk of Bauman Street at high speed, hitting 27-year-old Yuri Karpov from Rosgvardiya. The blow was so strong that Karpov died before the doctors arrived. The investigators opened a criminal case under Art. 264 of the Criminal Code “Violation of traffic rules and rules for operation of transport vehicles which has, by negligence, entailed a human death”.
Notably, the car owner got arrested after the incident. The 28-year-old man of Georgian descent claimed he had never met Aleksandr Lomov, to whom he had entrusted driving of his expensive foreign car. For some reason, the police had no further questions to Gubasaryan and he was soon released, which gave him enough time to escape.
Karen Gubasaryan is now on the federal wanted list. Aleksandr Lomov, who was driving at the time of the accident, was arrested in absentia by Tver Court and put on the international wanted list through Interpol.
