The First Deputy Chairman of the Crimean Tatar Mejis Nariman Jelal provided some new information about the course of the court session on his Facebook page.
- The Court suggested to divide the case. Ahtem Chiygoz, who is charged with organizing mass disorder and the other five men, who are charged with participation in mass disorders on February 2614 will be tried separately. The Prosecutor's Office has traditionally supported the suggestion of the court, all lawyers have opposed such a division. The court extended the detention of Chiygoz, Degermendzhi and Asanov until August 10, 2016, and granted the request of the lawyer Alexander Lisovoy about bringing Chiygoz’s wife Elmira Ablyalimova as a public defender to the process - he said.
It should be reminded that on May 27, the so-called Supreme Court of the Crimea rejected the appeal against the decision to extend the detention of Ahtem Chiygoz, the Deputy Head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, until July 22.
Chiygoz has been kept in the Simferopol detention center since the end of January 2015. He is charged with Part 1 of Article 212 of the Russian Criminal Code (‘organizing mass disorder’), which provides deprivation of liberty for a term of 10 years.
There are six accused in the criminal case on the riots during a rally at the walls of the Supreme Council of Crimea on February 26, 2014. Three of them, Ahtem Chiygoz, Mustafa Degermendzhi and Ali Asanov, are held in custody in the Simferopol detention center-1, and the rest, Eskender Kantemirov, Arsen Yunusov and Eskender Emirvaliev are awaiting the sentence at home, being out on bail.
