SC closed the criminal case against Durova

Author: Mark Gutman

The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation in St. Petersburg found that the car was driven by the VKontakte creator, but the case was transferred from criminal proceedings to administrative proceedings because of lack of evidence of Paul Durov’s intent to use violence.
The Investigative Committee reports that despite the established fact of finding Durov behind the wheel of a car that hit, the criminal case is closed, and now imputed administrative punishment: according to this article, a maximum of 1000 rubles or arrest for 15 days is threatened.

In the course of the investigation, the records of security cameras were seized and inspected, a number of witnesses were installed and interrogated, a Mercedes car was inspected, a large number of investigative actions were carried out, according to which it was established that on the evening of April 5, 2013, while driving a Mercedes, the territory of the Central District of St. Petersburg, was Pavel Durov, 28, driving a motor vehicle that violated the requirements of traffic rules.

After that, Durov disobeyed the lawful requirements of the traffic police officer about stopping the vehicle and, disobeying the police officer, continued the movement, having hit a policeman, causing him bruises of legs and abrasions.

The report says that Durov’s actions were not found malicious intent against the policeman.

Due to the fact that in the investigation of the criminal case there is not sufficient evidence of Durov’s intent to use violence against the policeman, Durov’s actions are qualified by the investigation under art. 19.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses (disobedience to the lawful order of a police officer).

We suspect that the investigators involved in Durov’s case did not study his comments on this issue.

And where is Durov himself?
