The Burgas Court of Appeal confirmed the decision of the first instance, with which the treatment of Ivelin Ivanov. A measure of remand “in custody” has been taken.
He was brought in as a defendant for the fact that on 08.11.2023 at around 1:00 p.m., on road I-9, km. 226+400, next to “Boiar” wine cellar, municipality. Pomorie, while driving a motor vehicle – an Audi car, model “A7”, violated the traffic rules and caused the death of two persons and moderate physical injuries to four other persons, the case being particularly serious.
The appellate instance accepts that the analysis of the collected evidence allows reasonable suspicion of the possibility that the accused is the perpetrator of the crime, as well as that there is a danger of absconding. The court indicates that the pre-trial proceedings are at an initial stage and the collection of other evidence and the specification of the accusation are pending.
The appellate panel considers the conclusions of the district judges to be justified, that there are a sufficient number of effective criminal decrees and issued slips of the accused, and many of them are specifically for driving a motor vehicle at an excessive speed.
“These circumstances, together with the data presented by the questioned witnesses regarding the behavior in the specific case, lead to the conclusion that the administrative penalties imposed on him did not have their preventive and corrective effect on the accused, and did not affect his obvious impulsiveness and desire for quick speeds when driving a motor vehicle” – says the ruling of the Appellate Court – Burgas.
The public danger of the crime itself is higher than usual – not only because of the number of victims and their bodily injuries, but also because of the initial data on the mechanism of committing the crime, the circumstances in which it was committed, the several violations of traffic rules and others.
The current address and employment do not ignore the danger of absconding and committing another crime, as they were present at the time of the act, but did not prevent the accused from committing the crime, the appellate judges point out.
The decision of the Court of Appeal – Burgas is final.
