All the criminal charges have been dropped in the case of the fuel tank truck explosion in Almaty, Tengrinews reports citing the Almaty Interior Affairs Department representative Saltanat Azirbek.

According to Ms. Azirbek both criminal cases initiated after the deadly accident in Almaty involving a fuel truck of Helios company - poor quality repair of a vehicle resulting in death of a person and violation of traffic rules resulting in death of a person - were dropped because of insufficiency of criminal evidence and absence of the event of a crime.

“Vehicle forensics, fire and forensic medical inspections were made; independent experts filed their reports. But no explicit cause of the accident could be identified,” Ms. Azirbek said.

This official conclusion came as a surprise after the preliminary statements made by the authorities. The preliminary inspection results released by the Almaty Interior Affairs Department in August said that the vehicle had a faulty steering control and had no driving shaft on its secondary breaking system.

However the new conclusion of the expert committee and the dismissal of the criminal cases will put a period to the unhappy story of the fuel truck accident and protect the company from any further claims.

The petrol tank lorry flared up near Rixos Hotel in Almaty at the crossing of Seifullin and Kabanbay Batyr streets after crashing into an offroader on June 27. The truck’s driver died at the accident site because his door got jammed and he could not get out of the truck before the petrol inflamed. The fire moved over to the RealSport sports shop, and #138 Kabanbay Batyr residential building. According to the rescuers, 40 people were evacuated from the building. The 27-y.o. truck driver died on the spot.

Helios restored the damaged building and paid compensations to the owners of the burned cars, apartments and shops.

Akhmetzhan Yessimov, Akim (Mayor) of Almaty, sent a petition to the Presidential Administration to honor Goryunov with a posthumous award.
