It was reported earlier, that a second hearing for Akhtem Chiygoz, Mejlis Deputy Chairman, in the so-called ‘February 26’ case took place today. Akhtem Chiygoz stands accused of organizing mass riots outside the Crimean Parliament in Simferopol on February 26, 2014. A first hearing was held on December 28, 2015.

After reading felony charges, the judges adjourned the trial until January 25, 2016, because Niolay Polozov, Chiygoz’s lawyer, asked for more time to acquaint himself with the case files.
