Parents of Karaganda citizen Kirill Denyakin who was shot by police officer in Portsmouth, U.S., lost the civil case on compensation for death of their son, Interfax-Kazakhstan reports.
"In the morning my wife called me from the States, where she attended the trial. She said that the court did not satisfy the civil suit on recovery of material and moral damage," Kirill's father told Interfax-Kazakhstan on March 2.
According to him, Denyakins' lawyerws claimed $22 million from American police. "We requested compensation from police for moral damage and compensation for material harm to our family. We are still recovering from the death of our son. Transportation of Kirill's body to Kazakhstan was very stressful, too. I don't wish anyone to ever experience anything similar in their lives. The court's decision is unfair. I can't yet say whether we will be appealing against the court decision," Denyakin said.
On February 10, American court failed to find any reasons to bring police officer Stephen Rankin to criminal liability ruling out that his actions were not illegal and the shooting was a necessity.
