Lawyer Andrei Bochkarev prevented the illegal seizure of the client’s car in the framework of a criminal case

Andrei Bochkarev, a partner lawyer of Rezolut, together with the client, took part in the investigative action – the interrogation of a witness, which was carried out in a police department of one of the regions of the Chelyabinsk region. At the end of the interrogation, the client and the lawyer were presented with a decree to seize the car, in which the client arrived at the police department. After examining the decree on the seizure, lawyer Andrei Bochkarev indicated to the investigator that it was drawn up with gross violations of the criminal procedure legislation and was illegal. Thus, the purpose of the seizure of the car was to find in it the alleged items (not specified which ones) related to the criminal case, while the car itself did not have any significance for the criminal case. Andrei Bochkarev achieved a meeting with the head of the police department, at which he drew attention to the illegality of the investigator’s actions. As a result of the measures taken, the decision to seize the car on the same day was canceled by the head of the inquiry department, and the rights of the principal were protected.
