Lawyer Elman Pashayev volunteered to defend blogger Edward Beale after a massive traffic accident in the center of Moscow. This was reported on April 1 by Komsomolskaya Pravda.
“But I will not, like (lawyer Alexander. – Ed.) Dobrovinsky, run after the persons involved in high-profile cases and offer them my services,” he said.
Pashayev noted that a normal lawyer does not have time for such nonsense. He remembered the case of the actor Mikhail Efremov, who was sentenced to 7.5 years for a fatal accident in the center of Moscow, whose interests he represented. According to the lawyer, in the case of Bill, things are different.
“You can get off with a suspended sentence. Unless, of course, the driver was drunk, ”Pashayev said.
A resonant accident involving Beale occurred on April 1 on the Garden Ring near the Barrikadnaya metro station. According to preliminary data, the car driven by the blogger drove into the oncoming lane and crashed into four cars. As a result of the road accident, a woman who was driving one of the cars was seriously injured. She was hospitalized, now she is in intensive care.
Lawyer Sergei Zhorin said that Bill was placed in a temporary detention center for 48 hours. Beale’s house was searched.
According to the REN TV channel, for three months in 2021, Beale has more than 400 speeding fines, and in total he has more than 500 violations, some for speeding by 100 km / h.
Edward Beale is a popular YouTube blogger who is known on the Internet for scandalous pranks. 4 million people have subscribed to his channel.
