The case of Khayser Jemilev, son of Crimean Tatar leader, Ukraine’s Presidential Commissioner on Crimean Tatar Affairs Mustafa Jemilev, will come up for trial in the court of the Krasnodar region of Russia.

Representative for the Prosecutor Office of Krasnodar region told this to Russia’s RIA Novosti.

“The case was investigated in Crimea, but then was transferred to Supreme Court of Russian Federation, as no Republican court was created in Crimea, following its unification with Russia”- Prosecutor representative said.

Khayser Jemilev was arrested in May 2013 after allegedly shooting a friend dead.

Crimea's authorities reopened the investigation after Crimea’s unification with Russia in March, 2014.

Khayser Jemilev is being held on three charges under the Russian Criminal Code, including murder and the illegal possession of weapons.
