Two years ago, a scandal erupted in the Molchanovsky court. Then the entire judicial corps resigned: the chairman of the court Vyacheslav Lapaev, as well as judges Irina Usynina and Tatyana Dubasova. The media linked this unprecedented event to an acquittal against two police officers. They were accused of not providing assistance to a minor injured in an accident. From the testimony of the victim it followed that he allegedly did not need help and he left the scene of the accident on his own. His mother even said that his son was injured in a fall from the roof, and not in a traffic accident, reported website Vtomske.ru.
The prosecutor’s office challenged the acquittal, after which the judges of the Molchanovsky court resigned.
