In Brussels, the number of hit-and-run accidents has never been so high over the past ten years, more than 630. In total, one in six accidents with fatalities or injuries is accompanied by a hit-and-run. . This proportion is one in ten in Wallonia.
Who compensates for the damage caused to my damaged car? As the perpetrator of the hit-and-run is not known, it is impossible to identify the insurer of his car liability, who in principle must cover the costs. Your own car liability insurance will not be able to intervene either because it only compensates the victims of the accidents that you cause. If you have taken out an omnium, you can contact your insurer, who will compensate the material damage to your car. If you’ve been injured, you can turn to your driver’s insurance, if you have one.
Can the Belgian Common Guarantee Fund compensate me? If you have suffered bodily injury as a result of an accident involving the perpetrator of a fugitive offense, the Belgian Common Guarantee Fund will compensate you. However, it only covers bodily injuries.

“Any financial transactions of these people will be frozen. This will not only apply to foreign territory, but also to transactions with cards within the Republic of Belarus, ”explained Tsepkalo.
Mass protests in Belarus have been going on for over a month. In the early days, the authorities reported several thousand detainees and hundreds of victims. At least seven people were killed in clashes with security forces.
Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia imposed personal sanctions against Lukashenka and 29 other high-ranking citizens of the republic, declaring them persona non grata. The EU refused impose restrictions on the Belarusian leader because of the position of Germany and France, which considered that this would destroy diplomatic channels with Minsk.
Eurozone countries in August agreed impose sanctions on officials in charge of elections and those responsible for violence against demonstrators in Belarus. However, in September these measures blocked Cyprus, which demanded the inclusion in the sanctions list of seven Turkish companies conducting drilling operations on the disputed shelf area.
The United States has added 16 Belarusian officials to the sanctions list and promisedthat will expand it in the near future.

When Marcelo “Coto” Medrano He got off on Thursday after 11pm in his white Renault Clío to buy some candy at the YPF service station in Eva Perón and Avenida San Martín, in Grenadier Baigorria, he did not know that his life was in injury time. As soon as he left the multishop, he saw that another vehicle and a van had parked behind his car. When he stepped on the sidewalk, they shouted “stop, policeman” and then he knew they were going to kill him. He ran for his life as he was shot with a 40 caliber pistol. He crossed the back of the YPF with the hitman at his back, a man who never wavered. In Pueyrredón and Eva Perón, 50 meters from where the persecution began, “Coto” fell on his face. And when he was on the ground, the murderer finished it off shooting him in the head.
The murder of “Coto” Medrano removed from the field an important player syndicated as a drug dealer in the northern part of the city, a heavyweight who did not shake his pear to defend his territory and a brave bar from Newell’s Old Boys who stood in the current dissidence of the paravalanchas. Medrano was murdered in front of his wife and their sixth child, a little boy less than a year old.
When it comes to analyzing who paid for his death, a range of possibilities opens up. As many as the fights that “Coto” had in his life. Some look at the unresolved territorial conflict in the neighborhoods west of Rondeau Boulevard, a dispute that grew after the murder of Emanuel “Ema Pimpi” Sandoval in October last year, and the arrests of Tania Rostro and the “Lichy” gang Rosemary. Others observe the conflict that was unleashed with a certain “Dany”, a drug dealer in the Industrial Cordon and with whom they overlapped their points of sale in the market. They also look at the bar brava lerposa, where “Coto” came to have a place of prevalence during 2016. And they do not rule out the dynamics of a new expanding player is seeking to conquer territories and drug markets. Thus, depending on who the death of “Coto” is analyzed with, candidates may be added to want to eliminate him.
“Coto” Medrano was 44 years old and had six children. The oldest of them is imprisoned in Piñero, then he had another son with a second partner, three girls with his third wife and recently he had been a father once again with his last concubine. That relationship and the birth of the baby gave her a break and took advantage of social distancing to leave the city and settle in Paraná. He had returned to the city a month ago after that self-exile to settle in a house in Liniers in 1800, in Granadero Baigorria, 15 blocks from where he was murdered.
Yesterday the investigators wondered if he had returned after having closed a truce with a direct rival and was betrayed. This is a possibility considering that his relatives indicated that he felt threatened by “Dany”, the transman from the Industrial Cordon, and preferred to preserve his family and his three-month-old son by seeking refuge in another province. Have you had any conflict recently with people close to Ariel “El viejo” Cantero or with the former leader of the Los Monos band? One of the many questions that were raised on the street and that the investigation led by the prosecutor Ademar Bianchini must now answer.
Medrano’s crime occurred in the vicinity of a busy service station and the entire sequence was captured by several video surveillance cameras. “Coto” arrived in his Renault Clío with his last partner and their young son. Around 11pm he parked on Eva Perón, next to the YPF. He went into the multishop, bought two packages of candy, and went out to meet his death. The hit man who killed him used a 40-caliber pistol and left 15 holes in his body between entry and exit wounds. The evidence that he was finished off on the floor, on the sidewalk of a hardware store, was marked by a bullet in the neck and another in the jaw. One of the projectiles even hit the windows of the YPF multishop. The wife of “Coto” never got out of the car and in the 24th section, after the rigorous procedures, the car was unusually released and the woman left the place.
“Coto” was a bore with a record that supported him. In August 2006, an 18-year-old neighbor in Paunero y Suárez, in the Nuevo Alberdi neighborhood, was arrested for shooting. In November 2008 agents of the former Directorate of Dangerous Drugs took him behind bars after kidnapping 13 kilos of compacted marijuana, which earned him a sentence of six years in prison in 2010.
After regaining his freedom, between 2016 and 2017 his nickname was heard and investigated in the context of the bloody succession saga in the leper paravalanchas that included the murders of Matías Hernán “Cuatrero” Franchetti (on June 7, 2016 when he was leaving through door 6 del Coloso) and Maximiliano “Cabezón” La Rocca (on June 27, 2016). Also at that time they killed the bar Jonathan Rosales, shot to death on June 22, 2016 after being hit by a car when he was riding a motorcycle with his partner and an 8-month-old baby. This saga should also include the attacks against the leaders Claudio “Tiki” Martínez and Cristian D’Amico.
On March 13, 2017 “Coto” was arrested by the Federal Police and in October 2018 he was sentenced to two years in effective prison in an abbreviated process for abuse, illegal possession and possession of a firearm, cover-up and threats for three attacks that occurred in July 2015; possession of a stolen pistol in March 2017 and for having beaten and threatened a man in October 2018. A few days after closing the abbreviated report, he was released with assisted freedom.
“Coto” knew how to be linked to names like Milton José Abelardo Ferreyra, the son of “La Tata” Medina, or Vladimir Natalio Medina (assassinated in March 2019 in Maipú at 1100).

Medical examiner with toys – Barbie dolls and cars. She said that the car with the victim was turned clockwise, so Zakharov could not get worse. Although the video shows that the car was turned against. In addition, every 10 minutes from my phone there was a call to a certain number (read out the number), – said Efremov.
He also stated that the examination of the electronics in his car had not been carried out, and that Efremov himself could have been in the passenger seat, since an airbag had fired on him upon impact.
– The testimony of expert Fialko was ridiculed. Although not checking the electronics in an American car is at least strange. The passenger’s airbag went off, perhaps I was there, – noted Efremov.
The actor also said that he continues to search for a new lawyer.
– Over the weekend, my wife received a lot of calls and messages from lawyers, 2/3 of them were useless. Tomorrow we will decide who will represent my interests. Why not spend this day and a half on a biological examination?
