Yesterday, on July 25, Simferopol Court extended the detention for the 32-year old Hayser, the son of the head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev, for two more months, informs Crimean Information Agency. 

Hayser will stay in detention ward till September 25, while the investigation continues.  Such decision is taken as there are no reasons to change the measure of restraint.  Also, the pre-trial investigation cannot be completed in the declared earlier 2 months for objective reasons.  One of the reasons is the re-examination of Hayser’s mental health. 

At the same time, it became known that Fevzi Edemov died from one single shot.  Still, no information supports assumptions that Hayser fired a gun several times.   

To recall, the accident occurred on May 27 this year, at the residence of the younger son of
the head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people in Bakchisaray town.  Hayser Dzhemilev killed a man, presumably as a result of a careless handling of a registered gun.   

A criminal case was initiated, which preliminarily qualified the case under the part 1 of article 115 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine- intentional murder.  

The killed man- a 44-year old Fevzi Edemov was a builder and helped Dzhemilev’s family with construction and housework.

On May 28, the Court assigned detention for 2 months for Hayser as a restraint measure. 

In the beginning of June, Hayser was transferred to the mental hospital for the expertise.
