SIMFEROPOL / AQMESCIT (QHA) -

During the 116th meeting of the "court" in the case against the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ahtem Chiygoz, the decision was made to summon the Head of the Mejlis Refat Chubarov as a witness.

Lawyer Nikolai Polozov shared the corresponding information on his Facebook page.

"The defense filed a petition for interrogation of Refat Chubarov, but the judges decided to consider it after questioning the witness Egiz.”

In his video message Polozov added that the "court" would consider decision on Chubarov's testimony on May 23.

The lawyer believes that the court has no legal obstacles to calling Refat Chubarov as a witness. Only political.

Reference: Akhtem Chyigoz was detained in January 2015 in the Crimea, on accusations of organizing and participating in mass riots on February 26, 2014. Then, outside the building of the Supreme Council of Crimea, a rally was held in support of the territorial integrity of Ukraine. He has been detained for more than two years, awaiting sentencing. At the "court" he repeatedly stated that he does not admit his guilt and intends to fight to the end for the truth.

Earlier Nikolay Polozov stated that the non-violent struggle of the Crimean Tatar people for their rights particularly irritates Russia.
