New accusation emerge as investigation into car accident involving 'drunk' child continues, possible negligence
Investigators are being questioned by the experts who published a report claiming the child who got hit was drunk.
The Russian Investigative Committee Main Moscow Region Department opened a criminal case for violation of Article 293 (Neglect of Duty) of the Russian Criminal Code against the experts who published the report claiming the child who got hit in Balashikha was drunk, according to the Committee official spokesperson Svetlana Petrenko.
The report claiming the child had BAC 2.7 parts per thousand when he died caused a public outcry. The Department Administration was reported to have met with the child father. The Committee is going to take the case from the Russian MIA, as earlier reported. However, the child’s family requested the Committee and Russian Prosecutor General’s Office to institute another examination.
The Committee will inspect police officers’ actions at the scene of a traffic accident after they take on the case, according to Petrenko. They will also inspect how the officers investigated the criminal case, according to interfax.ru. Moreover, she said the experts’ actions “and objectivity during examination that led them to believe the child was drunk at the time of the accident will be examined.”
The accident happened in the Zheleznodorojny District, Balashikha on April 23. 31-year-old Olga Alisova was driving her Hyundai Solaris between apartment houses when she hit the child. She did not stop and continued driving, dragging him for about 10 meters more. The child died as the result. The car was driving at about 50-60 km/h while the driver was speaking on her phone, according to eyewitnesses. Alisova said the child was at fault because he threw himself in front of her car. 6-year-old Aleksey Shimko was on his way home after going for a walk with his grandfather. He did not notice the car. The pensioner was holding the child’s bicycle at the moment and did not manage to react on time.
Strange things began happening afterwards. First, the parents had to fight for almost a month for the police to open a criminal case where Alisova would be listed as a suspect. Alisova has been accused and imposed travel restrictions on at the time of writing. Later, the medical examination report was published, claiming the child had drunk at least a bottle of vodka. Finally, CCTV footage of local cameras disappeared.
Expert Mikhail Kleymenov who signed the report told life.ru that he simply collected (biological) material and sent it to a Moscow clinic that later sent him the results that he signed without reading them. The doctor who performed medical examination of the material urgently took a vacation.
It is worth mentioning that Alisova’s husband is a local gang member responsible for kidnappings, murders, robberies, extortion, and rape, according to the Mash community.
The Kremlin was told that they use Telegram for internal communications. However, if it is blocked, the staff of the Presidential Administration is ready to switch to another messenger, said Dmitry Peskov.
Deputy of Izhevsk Zakhar Milostivenko was detained the day before on suspicion of "restricting competition". Sources clarify that the case of the parliamentarian is connected with the criminal case of Alexander Soloviev, accused of multimillion bribes.
