Former politician guilty of fatal road accident to appeal against verdict in Buryatia
In Buryatia, the Supreme Court received an appeal from Bair Zhambalov. Three months ago, the court found him guilty of a fatal road accident and sentenced him to six years in a penal colony.
As reported by the agency "Arig Us”, After the announcement of the verdict, Zhambalov declared that he did not admit his guilt and did not agree with the verdict. At the same time, Makim Burchevsky, the father of Galina who died in an accident, and the prosecutor's office did not agree with the verdict. They demand tougher punishment. The date for the consideration of Zhambalov's case in the Supreme Court has not yet been set.
The accident happened in January 2020. Near the village of Baturino, a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, which actually belonged to a politician, knocked down a 17-year-old girl. The driver fled from the scene. Blame for the accident first took over a friend of Zhambalov, allegedly they swapped cars. But suspicion fell on the politician, and the Pribaikalsky District Court found him guilty of the girl's death. To the family of the deceased, he will pay 500 thousand rubles in compensation.
