Vitaly Zakharov does not believe in the sincerity of the convicted artist.
Today in the press center of AGN "Moscow" a press conference "The Efremov case: unknown facts" took place. The speakers were the son of the driver who died in an accident with Mikhail Efremov Vitaly Zakharov and his lawyer Sergey Avertsev... They answered many questions of interest to the public. In particular, did Efremov pay compensation, are they satisfied with the verdict, how do they feel about the idea to create a fund named after Sergei Zakharov, and did the family manage to forgive Mikhail Olegovich.
“It is important for us not to destroy Mr. Efremov, and Vitaly Sergeevich will agree with me. It is important for us to achieve justice, ”- first of all, said lawyer Sergei Avertsev. The human rights activist also noted that he expects nothing from the appeal. “Indeed, there was nothing interesting. The matter is quite simple. The situation itself was clear from the first days, ”Avertsev noted.
Vitaly Zakharov, in turn, said that he expected sincere repentance from Mikhail Efremov, but there was none. “I want Mr. Efremov to realize his guilt. And so that it would affect him, and he changed himself. If the real term replaces with a suspended one, we will appeal against it, ”summed up the son of the deceased.
Also, lawyer Sergei Avertsev said that Mikhail Olegovich paid compensation to Vitaly Zakharov in full. Moreover, the actor transferred not 800 thousand rubles to Vitaly's account, as the court ruled, but about a million. How the man will dispose of this money is unknown.
