SIMFEROPOL / AKMESDZHIT (QHA) -

At today's session of the court on the case of Ahtem Chiygoz, the "victim" M. Gusarov said that he saw Mustafa Dzhemilev at a rally on February 26 outside the Supreme Council of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea. According to the victim, Dzhemilev was allegedly "sitting on one of the protesters’ shoulders", reads the message on Twitter of lawyer Nikolay Polozov who is now present at the hearing.

However, Mustafa Dzhemilev was not present at the rally, because at that time he was in Kiev, which speaks not only about the absurdity of testimony, but about its untruthfulness as well.

As QHA reported earlier, the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ahtem Chiygoz cannot attend the hearings on his case due to the discriminatory rules on the defendant’s remote participation in the first instance trials.

Previously, the so-called Court of Crimea made a decision to extend the detention of Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ahtem Chiygoz until 8 January 2017.

September 21, the "Chiygoz case" - a trumped-up trial of the Mejlis Deputy Chairman of Ahtem Chiygoz - took another twist following the evidence given by Vladimir Leontiev, the spouse of V.D. Koreneva, deceased at the rally on February 26, 2014. He said he does not blame Ahtem Chiygoz for the death of his wife, lawyer Nikolai Polozov informed after the court hearing.
