Investigative Committee refuses to initiate criminal case against judge Krikorov who hit student in Krasnoda
The forensic report showed that the woman had been “moderately” injured, so there is no occasion for criminal proceedings.
The Investigative Committee has refused to initiate a criminal case against a judge of the Krasnidar garrison military court Arsen Krikorov who had hit an 18-year-old woman in a crosswalk in Krasnodar, in December, last year, reports Rosbalt. The refusal was caused by the fact that the forensic report had showed that the woman had been “moderately” injured.
The forensic report showed that the woman had been “moderately” injured, so, in the witnesses’ words, there is no occasion for criminal proceedings. Krikorov is going to be held administratively liable.
The central military investigation department and the Prosecution Service are going to check the conclusion of the Investigative Committee.
Arsen Krikorov found himself in the crosshairs in mid-January, 2019, when video of a man reminiscent of himself threatening the car accident’s eyewitnesses went viral on social networks. In the eyewitnesses’ words, on December 21, the judge - while at the wheel of Kia Optima - hit an 18-year-old woman who was crossing over the road with yellow lights on. After that, Krikorov tried to escape the scene, however other motor vehiclists stopped him. Eyewitnesses believe the judge was drunk.
The victim’s mother says it was only after the video went viral when the judge contacted her. In her words, Krikorov did not offer help, but threatened with “war.” The victim herself also received threats.
