At the 77th court session on the case against the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ahtem Chiygoz the video evidence was further considered.
The charges against Ahtem Chiygoz pointed out that a breakthrough in the building of the Supreme Council of Crimea had been carried out under the leadership of the accused. Lawyer Nikolai Polozov notes that the evidence examined earlier and today fully confirm the inconsistency of the charges.
Thus, the fourth video examined, clearly shows that the pro-Ukrainian rally participants went into the building after the so-called militia and Cossacks. And, this episode refutes the version of "breakthrough".
“People do not violate public order, do not destroy property. They address the legitimate demands to the deputies, who are in the lobby, asked the reason why the deputies are going to decide on the accession of the Crimea to Russia, and the deputies say something in respond. Accordingly, this episode refutes the breakthrough version. People just walk into this room, and nobody impedes their way. Chiygoz himself is not involved - Polozov said.
Charges against Ahtem Chiygoz in this part completely crumbled, he stated.
“Now we can certainly say that the investigation did not examine these files, neither did the prosecutor's office, otherwise they would not have allowed the destruction of their own versions by such irrefutable physical evidence like video, which, in contrast to the testimony of victims and witnesses, do not lie.”
Evidence will be considered further in the afternoon.
The 74th day of the trial was one of the turning in the case against the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ahtem Chiygoz. During a two-hour interrogation, the main witnesses for the prosecution Enver Arpatly stated that organization of mass events on February 26, 2014 outside the Verkhovna Rada of the ARC were assigned to Zaur Smirnov, but not Ahtem Chiygoz.
Thus, the witness testimony fundamentally refutes the charges in the enough trumped-up case against Ahtem Chiygoz.
