Police Officer Balakerimov violates traffic rules at wedding, father wants to cover up
Businessman believes that the video clip with his son’s wedding motorcade was posted on the internet on someone's order.
Businessman Lazer Balakerimov, the father of the Moscow police officer, whose wedding procession violated traffic rules on the roads of the capital city, promises to settle the scandal.
Balakerimov owns the majority of commercial facilities on the territory of Troitsky Administrative District of Moscow. He said that there had been no motorcade at the wedding of his son Karakhan. As it turned out, the wedding took place in September 2016, and was paid for by Lazer Balakerimov.
"As if I could not earn 500-600 thousand for my son’s wedding! We had 110-120 people guests. I must say, no motorcades at all, everything like the common folk does," Dni.ru quoted the businessman as saying. He believes that the fact that video was published almost six months after the marriage proves that it was done on somebody’s order.
"I think it'll take care of all the problems," the businessman concluded.
It is worth noting that Balakerimov’s family hails from Dagestan. Lazer has three sons and a daughter. One of his sons, 23-year-old Murad Balakerimov, is a close friend of the infamous racer Mara Bagdasaryan. Murad calls himself her cousin. In social networks, the young man published photos from Porsche and Bentley, posing with a gun and a stack of money.
As for the 26-year-old Karakhan Balakerimov, he started working in law enforcement two years ago. It is small surprise that the son of prominent businessman of the Troitsky and Novomoskovsk Administrative Districts joined the MIA Department for the Troitsky District. Detective Balakerimov is engaged in the fight against organized crime in the 6th Criminal-Investigative Unit.
As the CrimeRussia previously reported, a few months ago, 26-year-old Karakhan Balakerimov celebrated his marriage in a grand manner. In a video of the wedding convoy, a BMW can be seen going against traffic on Vernadsky Prospekt in Moscow. Karakhan Balakerimov was in the passenger seat of a white Cadillac Escalade, looking at that with a smile. It should be noted that the convoy featured only elite cars, like Bentley, Gelandewagen, Mercedes, and so on.
The video provoked public uproar. The State Duma urged to punish the police officer. For example, head of the Liberal Democratic Party Vladimir Zhirinovsky demanded to expel Balakerimov from the law enforcement agency.
"They are deliberately trying to infiltrate the [law enforcement] bodies, so as to then help out similar violators of public order. This is completely unacceptable," the lawmaker stated. "Secondly, if they are the children of wealthy businessmen, it is necessary to conduct a deep scan of these business structures. Chamber of Accounts, the tax office, and I assure you, they will find something to punish them for."
In turn, chairman of the Coordination Council of the Moscow police trade union Mikhail Pashkin believes that Karakhan Balakerimov should be dismissed from his post after this scandal.
"He's a detective, no person should be allowed to know him in the face. How is he going to carry out investigation, when his face is familiar to every bandit?" Pashkin said.
