Fatal road accident in Kyiv: Judge Tandyr remanded in custody until 9 September

Judge Tandyr, who is suspected of hitting a National Guard officer to death at a checkpoint in Kyiv, was left in custody until 9 September, reported a correspondent of Babel. 

Tandir requested home arrest, and the prosecutor requested detention for at least another 23 days. The court sided with the prosecution.

Prior to that, the lawyer of the wife of Vadym Bondarenko, the National Guard officer killed at the checkpoint, returned money to the defence counsel of Judge Oleksiy Tandyr. The day before, Anna Bondarenko told Babel that she had received 18,000 hryvnias on her card from Tandyr's family. The judge's lawyer, Oleh Yurchenko, refused to accept the money.

In early August, the State Bureau of Investigation completed a pre-trial investigation into Judge Tandyr. Expert examinations confirmed the alcohol content in the samples.

The tragedy happened in Kyiv on the night of 26 May. The accident happened at the beginning of the curfew, when a National Guard officer was setting up roadblocks. The head of the Makariv District Court tried to convince the police that it was not him who was driving, but the driver who had fled into the bushes.

Later, the court granted the prosecutor's request and allowed the forced collection of biological samples from the judge. The High Council of Justice authorised Tandyr's detention.

The HCJ also suspended Tandyr from performing his duties.
