Driver of the Prosecutor General’s Office hitting a man to death by service car sentenced 

In Tashkent, the Yashnabad district court on criminal proceedings sentenced the former driver of the Prosecutor General’s Office, who hit to death an employee of Westminster University by a service car.

As Kun.uz source at the district court reported, on April 15, the Yashnabad district criminal court concluded the trial against a 31-year-old ex-driver of the Prosecutor General’s Office, on the fact of the incident with a 58-year-old employee of Westminster University.

According to the court verdict, the former driver of the supervising body was found guilty of violating traffic safety rules. The court sentenced him to 4 years of imprisonment with deprivation of driving license for 2 years.

However, the court decided not to execute the punishment imposed, if there are no grounds for annulment of the suspended sentence during the two-year probationary period.

It should be recalled that in January 2019, the driver of an official car of one of the departments of the General Prosecutor's Office hit a pedestrian to death. On January 24, a Lacetti car driver at the intersection of Shakhrisabz and Tarakkiyot streets of the Yashnabad district did not slow down near a pedestrian crossing and hit a man. The pedestrian was an employee of the University of Westminster (born in 1960). On January 29, he died in hospital as a result of serious injuries sustained.

On the same day, January 24, on the above fact, a criminal case was initiated under Part 2 of Article 266 (violation of traffic safety rules or vehicle operation, resulting in death of a person) of the Criminal Code.
