Russia hasn’t permitted Hayser, the son of the Ukraine’s MP Mustafa Dzhemilev, convicted in Russia for the accidental killing of a family’s friend, to serve his sentence in Ukraine, Nikolai Polozov, a lawyer of Dzhemilev Jr., wrote on Twitter.
- Russia has declined re-extradition request concerning my client Hayser Dzhemilev. Now we waiting for parole hearing, Polozov wrote.
The jury found it proven that May 2013 in the Crimean city of Bakhchisarai Hayser Dzhemilev accidentally shot with a gun a family’s friend Fevzi Edemov in the yard of his house.
As QHA reported earlier, the prosecution insisted it was a premeditated murder. Krasnodar regional court sentenced Dzhemilev Jr. to five years' imprisonment for causing death by negligence.
Subsequently, the Russia’s Supreme Court reduced the sentence to three and a half years, substantiating a decision saying Hayser Dzhemilev’s statute of limitations under the Section "causing death by negligence" has expired.
The process attracted the attention of Russian public since the father of the accused for a long time headed the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people - the National self-government of about 260 thousand Crimean Tatars.
Following Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Mustafa Dzhemilev has been banned entry into the Republic of Crimea for five years since the authorities accused him of inciting ethnic hatred. It is worth mentioning that in addition to Dzhemilev, Ismet Yuksel, Refat Chubarov and Sinaver Kadyrov have also been banned from entering Crimea.
