At the end of last year, a criminal case was initiated against the witnesses who spoke on the side of the defense of Mikhail Yefremov under Article 307 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. Now the investigation is trying the circumstances under the influence of which Alexander Kobets, Andrei Gaev and Tevan Badasyan gave false testimony under oath. Two witnesses stated that they saw the actor in the passenger seat, the third testified that shortly before the accident, a stranger had got into Yefremov's car.
As a source told the court, whose words lead StarHit, "all three of them are now involved in the interrogations, and business category is assigned to a" special importance". By the way, Aleksandr Kobets and Andrei Guys so poorly behaved in the meetings with the investigator, it was decided to test their sanity : both were sent to a specialized institution, where they will stay for several days while different procedures are being carried out. Tevan Badasyan's house was searched at 7 am during the week, however, nothing was seized"
The actor himself does not participate in interrogations or confrontations. “We don't know why they brought him in”, - says one of Yefremov's lawyers, Roman Filippov. - As for the appeal, we will submit it soon. But its consideration will definitely not take place in the near future. " According to the lawyer, the actor will soon be transported back to the colony in the Belgorod region.
