Vitaly Zakharov noted that he learned about the idea of the second wife of Sergei Zakharov to establish a charitable organization from the media.
On September 8, the Presnensky District Court announced the verdict to 56-year-old Mikhail Efremov. As you know, at the beginning of the summer, the artist, while intoxicated, caused a fatal accident. The victim of the accident was a 57-year-old courier from Ryazan, Sergei Zakharov. By a court decision, Mikhail Olegovich received eight years in a general regime correctional colony. Also, the artist was ordered to pay 800 thousand rubles to Zakharov's eldest son as moral compensation.
It is worth noting that Mikhail Olegovich himself, shortly after arriving at the remand prison, sent a complaint against the verdict to the Presnensky District Court. In total, six appeals were written on the high-profile case. The Moscow City Court will consider each of them on October 20. The procurator did not appeal against the verdict. But a new civil suit came from the relatives of the deceased driver.
Mikhail Efremov at the scene of the accident
Alexander Dobrovinsky, who represented the victims in court, said a week ago that three of the members of the family of Sergei Zakharov who were involved in the case of Efremov intend to demand compensation for moral damage in the amount of three million rubles, that is, each of them wants to receive a million rubles from the actor. At the same time, the lawyer stressed that the money will go to the creation of a fund that will provide support to the same victims, like them.
Vitaly Zakharov, who was the eldest son from his first marriage to the deceased driver, was very critical of the idea of his father's second wife. He admitted that he learned about Margarita's initiative from the media, no one warned him about anything. Vitaly did not hide the fact that he would not like the foundation to be named after Sergei Zakharov. Moreover, he is sure that his father would have supported him. Vitaly spoke about this during a live broadcast at a press conference of the Moscow City News Agency.
I must say that the eldest son of the driver who died in an accident with Efremov appeared on television from the very first days after the accident. By his own calculations, he took part in the filming of four shows, for which he is still criticized by some. So, now the ex-lawyer of Efremov Elman Pashayev has repeatedly argued that the victims in the high-profile case staged a "dance on the bones", wishing only to become famous in the tragedy. Vitaly Zakharov today had to once again tell that he came to television only so that no one on the part of Mikhail Efremov had the opportunity to hush up the case.
Recall that Vitaly Zakharov and his lawyer Sergey Avertsev they were also remembered for the fact that they initially wanted to receive more than seven million rubles in moral compensation from Mikhail Olegovich. At the same time, Avertsev, who was also present at today's press conference, admitted that he did not even count on the fact that the court would meet him and Vitaly halfway. However, Vitaly received from the artist even more than he should have. The fact is that even before the verdict, Mikhail Olegovich transferred 200 thousand rubles to the account of the eldest son of Sergei Zakharov. Thus, Vitaly received a million rubles in moral compensation.
