The activists, who were going to attend the trial on the "Chiygoz case ", were stopped by the armed people in Crimea according to Nariman Jelal, the First Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people.
“This morning, Russian militants stopped the car with our activists, who left the village of Urozhayne Soviet District for the Ahtem Chiygoza trial in Simferopol,” he wrote on Facebook.
Activists say that they were taken out of the car being held at gunpoint.
“We left the village when suddenly a Kamaz blocked the road and the gunners appeared at the roadside. They forced us to leave the car, took our phones and checked the documents. And all the while we were held at gunpoint,” told the activists.
According to Jelal, at the moment the activists are going to Simferopol.
Today, August 12, another court session is held on the case of the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ahtem Chiygoz. He can not attend the session personally because of the discriminatory rule of the defendant’s remote participation in the first-instance trial.
