In May 2013 Khaiser Dzhemiliev shot and killed 44-year-old Fevzi Edemov who was working as a guard to the family. All the evidence indicates that this was a tragic accident, and that the correct charge should be of manslaughter through careless use of firearms.
Mustafa Jemilev says that from the outset the focus was on him, not his son.
In Nov 2013 he was offered a deal by people close to the then president Viktor Yanukovych – if he left the opposition and joined the ruling Party of the Regions, his son would be freed the next day. He could not accept such conditions and within a few days, the charges against Khayser were made even more serious.
Crimea's authorities reopened the investigation after Crimea’s unification with Russia in March, 2014.
Khayser Jemilev now is being held on three charges under the Russian Criminal Code, including murder and the illegal possession of weapons.
Four months ago Ukraine’s Human Rights Ombudsperson Valeria Lutkovska addressed an open appeal to her counterpart in Russia, Ella Pamfilova, saying that Khayser Jemilev is being held as a hostage, and that he is being illegally prosecuted under Russian legislation.
