On Monday, the Moscow District Court released from custody janitor Bakhrom Khurramov. The labour migrant from Uzbekistan broke the jaw to the schoolboy by the stick of the spade a month ago. The lawyer of the migrant and the lawyers of the injured parties insisted on the release of the janitor. Khurramov apologized to the injured parties, and the Uzbek diaspora compensated 50,000 roubles of moral and material damages to the mother of the boy.
The incident, which caused a criminal case against Khurramov, occurred in early January at the yard of the school number 2008 in the Yuzhnoye Butovo District of Moscow, the Rossiiskaya Gazeta daily recalled. The migrant janitor inflicted heavy injuries to the teenager, the detectives said. The boy was hospitalized, the Uzbek migrant was under investigation. However, local residents unexpectedly supported the janitor, claiming that the children provoked the man, hampering him to work and just made him commit an act of aggression by the insults on him. They came to the court building on Monday, wishing to protect the defendant. The detectives believe that the janitor was running after the children, broke the spade and hurled the stick of the spade at the teenagers running away. The stick of the spade hit Artyom Khoteyev, 12, on the face. The medics diagnosed brain concussion in the boy. There is no clear medical resolution, whether the boy has got brain concussion due to the strike of the stick or in the falling.
However, mother of the wounded schoolboy Larisa Khoteyeva came for a court session on Monday. “She asked the court to terminate the criminal case over the reconciliation of the litigating parties, and the judge satisfied her petition,” Khurramov’s lawyer Sanal Dordzhiyev told the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily. In his words, from the very beginning Bakhrom gave his apologies and asked the boy and his family to accept his apologies. Meanwhile, the Uzbek diaspora has already indemnified the material and moral damages to the Khoteyevs. The media reported that the damages were estimated at 50,000 roubles. It is noteworthy that Larisa Khoteyeva decided to refuse from court proceedings in the first days after the incident. “Larisa is a true Orthodox believer. She forgave Bakhrom, as the Christian tradition teaches us. The Uzbek diaspora did not bribe anyone. This was her conscious decision,” her relatives explained.
Khurramov’s lawyer Anatoly Pchelintsev from the Slavic human rights centre told reporters that only the public prosecutor came out against the termination of the criminal case. Meanwhile, all the lawyers noted that the public prosecutor failed to produce sound reasons in favour of his position. He offered to leave Khurramov in custody in order “to restore social justice,” the Moskovskiye Novosti daily quoted the lawyer as saying.
