Zamir Abdulkerimov is the Secretary of the Council of Prosecutor Generals of CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States).
He is also the main suspect in the hit and run car accident [source], in which a young woman was killed.
On October 6, 2012 Abdulkerimov’s Mercedes swerved into the oncoming lane and hit a 26-years-old woman, fatally injuring her.
The driver did not stop, but the accident itself was recorded by a dash camera of one car. The dash camera car driver rushed after the offender and soon caught him up. Later the witness even identified the hit-and-run driver as Zamir Abdulkerimov.
But suddenly the case got an unexpected direction…
Abdulkerimov, who had been hiding from investigators for a long time, finally gave the testimony. According to him, 5 minutes before the fatal collision he sold his car to a casual passerby!
The prime suspect, who under various pretexts was evading the interrogation, recently agreed to answer the questions of investigators. However, after it the case became only more complicated.
- Not only Abdulkerimov said that he sold his car, he also was not able to say who exactly the buyer was, – told a source from police.
According to Zamir Abdulkerimov, it was a casual “street” deal. That day, the prosecutor stopped his Mercedes S320 near a small stall to buy a pack of cigarettes.
- Allegedly, a man came up to him and said that he liked the car and wanted to buy it immediately. The suspect claimed to have received half of the money amount on the spot and handed the car keys to the buyer.
Investigators say that the man who witnessed the accident and followed the Mercedes had initially identified Abdulkerimov from a photo, but few months later he changed his testimony.
Currently, despite the absurdity of the suspect’s claims, the investigation does not have any formal evidences against Zamir Abdulkerimov.
- The investigation is continuing. We are verifying all facts, evidences and the claimed alibi, – say in the press-service of the Moscow Department of MVD. – The procedural decision on this case will be taken after careful analysis of all circumstances.
Comments of Russian netizens
Свет: That’s the power of darkness, and money … both the witness and the killer will pay for their crimes sooner or later.Власть тьмы и денег… и свидетель и убийца – каждый заплатит за свое рано или поздно.
Ольга: Had to take a picture of the offender during the conversation. Later the witness wouldn’t take back his words.Надо было нарушителя при разговоре сразу сфотографировать на сотовый. Потом свидетель не отказался бы от своих фото
Дмитрий: Hmm … Long time I haven’t heard (or read) such absurdity. My four years old son makes up different stories (he has a good imagination), which sound more believable than this nonsense.Мда… Такого абсурда я давно не слышал (читал). Мой сын в четыре года сочиняет всякие небылицы (хорошая фантазия), которые выглядят гораздо правдоподобнее, чем этот бред.
Александр: Yet another mockery of our justice and proof that in Russia nobody gives a f**k..!!!Очередная насмешка над серьезнейшими пробелами в законодательстве и очередное доказательство того, что в России всем пох…!!!
Андрей: It’s time to disassemble police and prosecutor’s office as ineffective agencies and organize the people’s army with the function of Lynch law.)Пора разгонять полицию и прокуратуру как неэффективные органы и организовывать народные отряды с функцией суда Линча.)
Евгений: Total bullshit. Nobody wants to make a normal investigation. For whom, indeed? For some simple Russian girl? When, on the other hand, there is a prosecutor on Mercedes. The relatives of the deceased should think about the blood revenge.Лажа полная. Никто не хочет провести нормальное следствие. Да и ради кого? Какая – то русская девушка. А тут целый прокуроришко намерсе. Время родственникам погибшей вспомнить о кровной мести.
