Teenager, who asked police officer to give up seat to old lady, becomes defendant in criminal case
The policeman refused to comply with the request, and the young man insulted him.
In Biysk, a pupil of 11th grade, Maxim Neverov, was summoned for questioning in a criminal case about insulting a government official. Shortly before, the teenager had signed a video with a policeman who had not given way to an old lady, with an obscene word, Open Russia reports.
According to the human rights movement, the 16-year-old schoolboy made a video of how he asked the police officer to give up his seat to an elderly woman. The policeman ignored the requests, and Neverov posted that to his Instagram story, backing up the video with strong words. After that, the policeman allegedly wrote a statement and “gave a tip to the video.”
Neverov did not receive the subpoena, so he refused to go to the Investigation Committee. For insulting a representative of the authorities, the young man can face a fine of up to 40,000 rubles ($ 600), or compulsory labor up to 360 hours, or correctional work up to a year.
