Emil Kurbedinov, a lawyer of Akhtem Chiygoz, Mejlis Deputy Chairman, charged with organizing mass riots outside the Crimean Parliament on February 26, 2014, is positive that the hearing’s result is easy to predict, even though it is still ongoing.
“The result is quite predictable. Akhtem Chiygoz’s detention term will be extended for 2 months,” Emil Kurbedinov said in an interview with QHA.
According to Kurbedinov, Alexander Lisovoy, and not Nikolay Polozov, is defending Akhtem Chiygoz at the today’s hearing.
Three of the six men charged with mass riots outside the Crimean Parliament on February 26, 2014, - Akhtem Chiygoz, Mustafa Degermendzhi and Ali Asanov – are now being held in Simferopol’s pre-trial detention center #1, while another three are awaiting trial at home after being released on bail.
On March 29, the defendants were not brought to Crimea’s Supreme Court for two hearings which were to be held by videoconference.
After the judges overruled the defense’s motion to bring Akhtem Chiygoz, Ali Asanov and Mustafa Degermendzhi to the courtroom, the defense filed another one seeking to reschedule the hearing because the defense was not duly notified.
As a result, the hearing of an appeal filed against Judge Galina Redko’s out of court decision of March 03, 2016, whereby detention term of Akhtem Chiygoz, Mustafa Degermendzhi and Ali Asanov was illegally extended, was rescheduled for April 6.
A hearing of an appeal filed against a decision of March 11, 2016, whereby detention term of Akhtem Chiygoz, Mustafa Degermendzhi and Ali Asanov was illegally extended, was rescheduled for April 7.
A hearing in the so-called February 26 case was held at Simferopol’s Kiev District Court today. Initiated on trumped-up charges, the case is gradually turning into a farce.
According to Nikolay Polozov, Akhtem Chiygoz’s lawyer, the judges keep rescheduling hearings in the hope of public interest in the trial waning by summer lull.
