Mara Bagdasaryan from Gelandewagen chase sentenced to community service
The Moscow Savelovsky court delivered a verdict regarding the young woman detained on November 6 on Moscow’s Leninsky Prospekt who had been involved in the chase with a Gelandewagen that belonged to a son of the Lukoil Vice-President Ruslan Shamsuarov.
The notorious street racer has been sentenced to 40 hours of community service for evading payment of administrative fines for traffic violations under Art. 20.25 of the Administrative Code, which provides punishment ranging from a fine of 1 thousand rubles up to 15 days of arrest.
According to the TASS with reference to court spokespersons, 51 files have been submitted to court proving 23-year-old Ms. Bagdasaryan committed multiple violations of road traffic rules. With this in mind, the Court could not sentence her to a money penalty.
The court ruled that Mara Bagdasaryan should perform compulsory labor in her spare time when she does not have to study or work. In case she refuses to perform forced labor, the girl will have to pay a fine from 150 to 300 thousand rubles.
The traffic police detained the offender for wrong parking yesterday, which became the grounds for an administrative material made by the officers.
Mara Bagdasaryan is known as a friend of Ruslan Shamsuarov, the son of the Lukoil Vice President, who together with others, were involved in a chase attempting to get away from the police, in May. However, the young woman was only a witness in the high-profile criminal case, after spending 10 days under arrest, while the other defendants Viktor Shamsuarov and Ruslan Uskov were sentenced to 300 hours of community service. Abduvahob Majidov, who was the forth one involved has been acquitted by the court.
Prosecutors believe the sentence is too lenient, seeking punishment for the accused who threated using violence against the authorities.
Unnecessary witness. Death of penitentiary service lieutenant colonel Viktor Shevchenko: Suicide or murder?
Two events occurred in close succession in the Irkutsk region. On February 11, 2018, it became known that major general Anatoly Kilanov, Head of the Regional Directorate of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia, was removed from office. The main suspect in an anti-corruption inquest carried out in late 2017, Kilanov was accused of extorting ‘levies’ from his subordinates. On February 12, 2018, Viktor Shevchenko, his deputy for service support, was found hanged. The investigation is currently explaining this suicide by a family quarrel. Has the lieutenant colonel really taken his own life? Or was it a disguised murder? And if so, who could be interested in it?
