The witnesses who spoke in the trial of Mikhail Efremov became suspects themselves. Three men are suspected of giving false testimony at the trial in order to refute the guilt of Efremov in the accident. Now false witnesses will go to trial, reports RBK…
During the trial of Efremov, the defense summoned three witnesses to the court. Two claimed that they saw another man driving an SUV, not Efremov, and the artist himself allegedly stood next to the car. Another defense witness claimed that no one was driving the jeep, and only an unknown man, not Efremov, was sitting in the back seat.
The testimonies of the witnesses were considered deliberately false and contradicting the conclusions of the investigation.
Recall that Mikhail Efremov was found guilty of an accident and the death of Sergei Zakharov, the driver of the second car. The artist was sentenced to 7.5 years in prison. Efremov is in the detention center of Belgorod in quarantine, and then it will be translated to a colony in the Belgorod region.
