MOSCOW, 8 Feb – RIA Novosti. Actor Mikhail Efremov filed a cassation appeal against his fatal traffic accident sentence, the executive secretary of the Moscow Public Monitoring Commission, Alexei Melnikov, told RIA Novosti.
Recently it became known that the convict was transported from the Belgorod colony to the capital pre-trial detention center. Many suggested that this may be related to the consideration of cassation complaints, but the regional UFSIN stated that Efremov was brought to Moscow “to participate in investigative actions.”
A law enforcement source told RIA Novosti that Yefremov was placed in the Vodnik pre-trial detention center in Moscow.
In 2020, the Presnensky court sentenced the actor to eight years in a general regime colony for a fatal traffic accident committed while intoxicated. The Moscow City Court has reduced the term to 7.5 years.
