Yefremov's lawyer: the family of the deceased Zakharov does not want to make contact
Elman Pashayev, Mikhail Yefremov’s lawyer, said that the actor is trying to negotiate compensation with the Zakharov family, but they don’t make contact. In addition, he believes that someone dissuades the injured party from negotiations in order to subsequently receive great benefits.
- We repeatedly tried to reach these people and agree on compensation. I just went to the mother of the deceased in the Ryazan region, but she is at a very advanced age, and I'm not sure that she took my words correctly. Other family members until the contact does not go,TASS leads Pashayev's words.
In addition, the lawyer clarified that “certain people who make PR on this tragic incident mislead the media” impede negotiations with the relatives of the deceased.
“If they would normally explain to the injured party how this will end, they would not do so. In one day, I traveled 800 kilometers throughout the Ryazan Region to somehow agree. But when someone does dirty PR, dissuades and assures that it's better to say that we don’t need anything, we will receive big money later, this is a mistake. Yefremov is not an oligarch”, - Pashayev told to Channel Five.
He added that the side of Efremov repeatedly apologized at the preliminary investigation and the hearing.
- There are two types of resolving the issue by a court verdict. Before the trial, you can get some material, moral help. And when a person is planted, what will they get? We are talking about this. It’s all the same, the payment of money does not mean that it frees him from criminal liability. Unfortunately, someone does dirty PR for himself. The injured party will suffer, ”said the lawyer.
He emphasized that "we must get out of the situation with conscience".
At the same time, the lawyer of the victims, Alexander Dobrovinsky, said that, on the contrary, no one came into contact from Efremov. Relatives themselves, said Dobrvinsky, are not ready to accept compensation. The apologies that Yefremov made in the video message Zakharovs consider to be belated.
He also said that family members of the deceased Sergei Zakharov are going to seek a fair court decision and "go to the end".
In his video message, Mikhail Yefremov asked forgiveness from the relatives of Zakharov, who died in an accident, and offered help.
Recall that the tragedy occurred on June 8, when Mikhail Yefremov in his Jeep Grand Cherokee car drove into the oncoming lane on Smolenskaya Square. As a result of the maneuver, his car crashed into a courier delivery van Delicatesca moving towards. The driver of the van Sergey Zakharov received severe injuries, from which he died in the hospital.
Traces of alcohol and drugs were found in Yefremov’s blood.
On charges against the actor, he faces up to 12 years in prison. He is currently under house arrest, which will last until August 9th.
