SIMFEROPOL / AQMESCIT (QHA) -

Crimean Shevket Razzakov was summoned for questioning to the office of the so-called Investigative Committee in the occupied Crimea, where he was notified of a suspicion of "public insult to a representative of the authorities."

Lawyer Emil Kurbedinov informed about the incident on Facebook.

“Indeed, Shevket Razzakov contacted our office and said that he was fraudulently made to come to the Investigative Committee. He was told that he was summoned as a witness. When he came, he found out that he was a suspect," he wrote.

After Razzakov refused to give any evidence, he was released under a written undertaking not to leave the place.

“Also, the investigator said that he would provide the lawyer for this interrogation. Razzakov refused the appointed lawyer and refused to testify. Then he was requested a written undertaking not to leave his usual place of residence and let go!” Kurbedinov informed.

Earlier, on October 20, the prosecutors opened a criminal case over "public insult of a representative of power" against Shevket Razzakov. The basis was the alleged spitting on the policeman. The incident occurred in Bakhchysarai on April 13 during a search of Riza Muzhdabaev and Seidamet Mustafayev.
