After a fight they don’t wave their fists, and they don’t lie to the investigator. An instructive story from Evpatoria
In Yevpatoria, a verdict was passed in a criminal case of knowingly giving false testimony to the court. A 40-year-old local resident was found guilty of committing a crime under Part 1 of Art. 307 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (deliberately false testimony of the victim in court).
The court found that the man, being a victim in a criminal case, gave deliberately false testimony to the court in order to help his friend avoid criminal liability for intentionally causing grievous harm to a person’s health. She indicated in court that the accused did not kick him in the stomach.
At the same time, based on the totality of evidence examined during the trial, the testimony given by the man was refuted and found untrue by the court. The fact of giving false testimony by a person warned against criminal liability against signature was recorded by the state prosecutor— reported the prosecutor’s office.
The court, taking into account the position of the state prosecutor, found the defendant guilty of committing a crime and sentenced him to a fine. This is how it happens: even if he was beaten, he will also pay a fine.
