The next hearing in the case of Ahtem Chiygoz is scheduled to be held August 30 at 9.30 a.m., First Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People Nariman Dzhelyal wrote on Facebook.
Two witnesses were questioned during yesterday’s hearing, but they not only failed to confirm the allegations against the defendant, they even do not know him.
- Today, two "victims" were questioned during the trial of the Ahtem Chiygoz case. According to the lawyer, they failed to confirm the charges against the defendant, as well as to point out any actions that could be considered as "organizing mass disorder". Moreover, they have not even seen and don’t know Ahtem Chiygoz. Most "victims" give similar evidence.
This once again shows that the accusations against Ahtem Chiygoz are far-fetched, as well as that most likely all the charges will involve "secret witnesses".
The next hearing in the Chiygoz case is due to be held on Tuesday, August 30 at 9.30 a.m., reported Nariman Dzhelyal.
As QHA reported earlier, the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ahtem Chiygoz won’t be present at the hearing due to the discriminatory rules on the defendant’s remote participation in the trials of the first instance. This will be the first time Russia will apply such judicial practice.
According to the lawyer Nicolay Polozov, the government thus wants to test the use of new provisions of the law. For example, the ability to disable the broadcast if the defendant begins delivering speeches the judges do not like (previously Chiygoz had a number of bright performances during the process).
The Crimean "authorities" decided to consider the case of the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People Ahtem Chiygoz separate of the so-called "February, 26 case."
Chiygoz has been kept in the Simferopol detention center since the end of January 2015. He is charged with Part 1 of Article 212 of the Russian Criminal Code (‘organizing mass disorder’), which is punishable by a 10-year jail term.
Six persons are charged with involvement in mass riots during a rally held outside the Crimean Supreme Council on February 26, 2014. Three of them, Ahtem Chiygoz, Mustafa Degermenzhi and Ali Asanov, are being held in Simferopol’s pre-trial detention center 1, while the other three, Eskender Kantemirov, Arsen Yunusov and Eskender Emirvaliyev, have been released on bail and are awaiting trial.
