Student placed in pre-trial detention center after killing biker in car accident
Alcohol was found in the blood of arrested Arkady Smely. Moreover, he tried to flee the scene.
The Nikulinsky Court of Moscow arrested student of Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) Arkady Smelov, who, according to the investigators, struck and killed a biker on Kutuzovsky Avenue and fled the scene, on Thursday, June 29.
As RIA Novosti reports with reference to the press service of court, the young man is placed in the pre-trial detention center till August 26.
To recall, the incident occurred on the night of July 27. Two students of MGIMO - Arkady Smelov and Yulia Dubovtseva, driving Mercedes-Benz ML, hit the 23-year-old head of the motor-section MADI moto of the Department of Physical Training of MADI University Arkady Dymov, while changing lines. It is unclear who was driving the car during the road accident. As witnesses assure, Yulia was the one who hit the biker, and Arkady moved to a driver's seat later and fled the place of the road accident. But he did not manage to leave far - literally several meters further, the young man flew in a stop and was detained by traffic police officers.
As the CrimeRussia wrote earlier, Yulia Dubovtseva and Arkady Smelov - children of influential businessmen. In this connection, the family of the dead biker expressed their fears that the guilty persons will manage to avoid punishment.
Judges and prosecutors have got an official permission for drunk driving. The MIA has amended the new Administrative Regulations of the State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate; its officers can not bring to liability representatives of the judicature and watchdog agency anymore. State road traffic safety inspectors can not even prohibit an intoxicated special subject from driving a car. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how judges and prosecutors managed to obtain such an immunity.
Several years ago, owner of two dozen companies and media sources Elada Nagornaya was called the richest wife of an official. Now her husband Oleg Sorokin is in a pre-trial detention center, and she has successfully left for Europe with other family members.
