The judge has already been detained. After the accident, the law enforcement officers saw signs of intoxication in him, but he refused to undergo an examination. Therefore, now they are trying to forcibly take biological samples from him.

The prosecutorʼs office reported that the incident took place on Beresteisky prospect. The judge drove a Lexus ES350. Violation of traffic rules while intoxicated, which led to the death of a person, is being investigated (Part 3 of Article 286-1 of the Criminal Code). The judge faces up to 10 years in prison.

The issue of notification of suspicion and appeal to the High Council of Justice, which can give consent to Tandyrʼs detention, is being resolved.
