KAZAN, January 22, 17:29 /ITAR-TASS/. A defendant in the Bulgaria shipwreck case reviewed by a Tatarstan court has renounced his testimony claiming the investigator's pressure, a spokeswoman said.
"Bulgaria pleasure boat's first mate Ramil Khametov claimed the investigator's pressure while acknowledging that he had not been under physical pressure," spokeswoman for the Moscow district court of Kazan Maria Lukashevich told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
On July 10, 2011, the Bulgaria sank at a depth of 18 meters in the Kuibyshev water reservoir, Tatarstan's Kamsko-Ustinsky district. One hundred and twenty-two people died. There were 79 survivors.
The trial will resume on Thursday, January 23, Lukashevich said. "The court will continue Khametov's questioning and consider the defense's request for a new examination of the vessel as hard evidence to be attached to the case."
