(QHA) -

Russian investigation agencies are going on with investigation of Hayser Jemilev’s case amid the instructions of European Court of Human rights on his release and transfer the case to Ukrainian court.

Head of “Crimea” Fund” charitable organization Riza Shevkiev was subpoenaed as a witness.

Shevkiev refused to give the details of his questioning amid the secret of investigation, still noted that investigator was not conversant with the decision of ECHR and the questions did not differ from those, Ukrainian investigators had asked.

Following the Article 10 of Crimean Constitution [on official languages of Crimea] Shevkiev testified in Crimean Tatar language, so the chief investigator had to use interpreter’s service.

Earlier, European Court of Human Rights has held that Russian Federation must ensure Hayser Jemilev’s right for freedom and that the case should be transferred to Ukrainian court.

The ECHR’s decision comes after Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev had lodged a lawsuit to European Court of Human Rights against Russia over the criminal investigation against his son, Hayser, who is a Ukrainian citizen.

Hayser is being detained in Crimea.

In May, 32-year old Hayser Jemilev killed a man, presumably as a result of a careless handling of a registered gun belonging to his father.
