Prosecutor's office cancels initiation of case against Tatarstan businessman who stabbed robbers in his house
The investigation charged the man with the use of excessive force in self-defense.
The prosecutor's office of Tatarstan decided to cancel the institution of criminal proceedings against businessman Yevgeny Dedanin, who killed two robbers entering his house. This is reported on the website of the supervisory authority.
The prosecutor's office conducted a check and did not agree with the findings of the investigators who established that Dedanin exceeded the limits of necessary self-defense. Since the robbers created “a real danger to the life of the defending person,” the entrepreneur’s actions were recognized as permissible. In particular, the men who broke into the businessman’s house threatened him and his wife with weapons and tried to knock the knife out of his hand.
On September 13, the Investigative Committee initiated a criminal case against Dedanin under part 1 of Article 108 CCRF (murder committed with use of excess force in self-defense).
The incident occurred on 12 September. As local media reported, first, the robbers tied Dedanin, his wife and friend, who were in the house at the time of the attack.
After some point, the owner of the apartment was able to free himself, after which a engaged in a fight with the intruders.
Dedanin himself told Business Online that when he was tied up, he clenched his fists to increase their volume, and so he managed to free himself, fought the robbers, and then grabbed the knife, thinking that the robbers would flee. “They started shooting, there was a misfire,” said the businessman.
During the fight, Dedanin hit the attackers several times with a knife. The robbers died before the doctors arrived.
