SIMFEROPOL/AQMESCIT (QHA) -

Elmira Ablyalimova, the wife of the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ahtem Chiygoz held by Russian security forces in a detention center and accused of the February 26 case, believes that her life is in danger, according to her Facebook post.

She told that on the night of June 16, at 10.40 p.m. unknown persons entered the territory of her yard.

"Due to the fact that the neighbors passing by oversaw the people and a car parked nearby, and made noise, unknown people retreated hastily. Given the people in Crimea are kidnapped - a girl has been raped and murdered recently - I believe that my life is in danger. There is no guarantee over such actions of the law enforcement agencies," she wrote.

According to Ablyalimova, in connection with the incident, she is going to prepare a statement to the Investigative Committee and the FSB (Russian Federal Security Service).

May 27, the Kremlin-controlled judges of the Crimean "Supreme Court" rejected an appeal against the decision to extend the detention term of the Deputy Head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People Ahtem Chiygoz until July 22.

Ahtem Chiygoz has been held in custody in Simferopol’s detention center No. l since the end of January 2015, and is charged with ‘organizing mass disorders’ under Section 1 of Article 212 of the Russian Criminal Code, which provides for 10 years imprisonment.

Six persons are charged with involvement in mass riots during a rally that took place outside the Crimean Parliament on February 26, 2014. Three of them, Ahtem Chiygoz, Mustafa Degermenzhi and Ali Asanov, are being held in Simferopol’s pre-trial detention center No.1, while the other three, Eskender Kantemirov, Arsen Yunusov and Eskender Emirvaliyev, are awaiting sentence at home, being taken out on bail.
