Investigative Committee: Our rich kids have no chances to avoid responsibility
The Investigative Committee Spokesman Vladimir Markin commented on the case against the son of the Vice-President of LUKOIL and his friends.
The experts confirmed the reasonableness of the charges against Ruslan Shamsuarov and his friends. The video which was broadcasted by Shamsuarov and his friends during the chase with the police passed the linguistic and psycho-linguistic examination. The official spokesman of the Russian Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin said that the criminal case was initiated under the two articles: the use of force against a government representative (article 318 of the Criminal Code) and insulting a government official (article 319 of the Criminal Code). Earlier, the investigation tried to qualify the actions of the driver and the passengers of the Gelandewagen as hooliganism, but the prosecutors did not find these actions in this crime. However, Markin said that the young men will not avoid the responsibility.
"Our rich kids have no chances to avoid the responsibility, they’ll get what they deserve", said Markin.
It is to be recalled that the 5 hour race with the police took place on May 22, 2016 on Leninsky Prospekt in Moscow. The Gelandewagen car grossly violated the rules of the road, did not obey the lawful demands of the traffic policemen and tried to escape from them. When the car was detained, Abduvahob Madjidov, Ruslan Shamsuarov (the son of the Vice-President of LUKOIL) and Viktor Uskov behaved provocatively, broadcasted what was happening on the Internet. The penalty for the driver's actions amounted to 5000 rubles. But then the Gagarin Court of Moscow arrested Majidov for 15 days, found him guilty of disobeying a lawful order or request of the police officer/ For the same offense two other passengers of the SUV were arrested for 15 days, and the girl who was with them got 10 days.
Now, the young people are under house arrest. The prosecutor's office has repeatedly tried to get them into custody, but the investigators have denied this.
Lawyers of Oleg Korshunov, who is charged with a large fraud in organizing the production of footwear for prisoners, do not see corpus delicti in his case. The prisoners did get their shoes, and the difference in the cost of footwear made from leather and split leather is about 10%.
