Crimean Supreme Court ruled to hold in custody Mustafa Degermendzhy, defendant in the case of "February 26," until March 8. Thus, the Court dismissed an appeal by Degermendzhy’s lawyer against the court's decision as of January, 25 to extend his detention period.
In the appeal the lawyer explained the absurd arguments by the Crimea’s Prosecutor Natalia Poklonskaya that she used to justify the need to detain Mustafa Degermendzhy, the CEC Chairman of the Kurultai of the Crimean Tatar people Zair Smedlyaev told the QHA news agency.
- If a person has not admitted his guilt - he must be held in prison, if he has not repented of what he has not committed – he must be in prison. And the third reason for detention according to the Prosecutor is that if a person is healthy he also must be held in prison. These are those absurd reasons for detention, said Smedlyaev.
Tomorrow the Crimean Supreme Court is to consider an appeal by protection of Ahtem Chiygoz against a similar court ruling to extend the detention for Chiygoz until March 8. The hearing is to start at 01.00 p.m.
According to Zair Smedlyaev, the lawyer of Ali Asanov, whose detention period also has been extended until March 8, has not lodged an appeal since he believes it is inappropriate - in any case, the court will take into account the arguments of the prosecution, but not the defense.
