Supreme Court of Crimea has dismissed an appeal of deputy head of Mejlis Akhtem Chiygoz, arrested Jan 29 on the suspicion of organizing “mass disorder”. He will be detained till Feb 19, 2015.
The court hearing was attended by Crimean Prosecutor General Natalia Poklonskaya, Akhtem Chiygoz’s wife Elmira Ablyalimova, his mother, daughter and sister.
Deputy head of Mejlis Nariman Dzhelal,head of Kurultay Electoral commission Zair Smedlyaev and Mejlis member Ilmiy Umerov were also present.
Akhtem Chiygoz, arrested Jan 29, is charged with organizing “mass disorder” which caused two deaths during a meeting Feb 26, 2014, when thousands of Crimean Tatars rallied at Crimean Parliament building, showing their support for Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
To recall, Crimea seceded from Ukraine and joined Russia in March, following a local referendum on the region’s status, which was declared illegitimate by international community.
All the events and incidents occurred in Crimea before March 16, 2014 are under the jurisdiction of Ukraine.
Meanwhile, head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov emphasized that it was he who arranged the rally Feb 26.
