ASTRAKHAN (QHA) -

Nikolay Polozov, a lawyer, filed a petition for parole of Hayser Jemilev, son of Mustafa Jemilev, Ukrainian MP and leader of Crimean Tatars.

“I filed a petition for parole of Hayser Jemilev to the Sovetskyi District Court of Astrakhan city,” Nikolay Polozov tweeted. 

He also added,

“Today, Hayser Jemilev has met his wife and mother within short visits. He feels good, but he is confined in a ward-type room."

Just a reminder: On May 27, 2013, an accident happened at the house of Hayser Jemilev, the youngest son of Mustafa Jemilev, head of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars, in Bakhchysarai. Hayser Jemilev killed Fevzi Eden, 44, as a result of careless handling the registered weapon.
  
On this fact the criminal proceedings were opened in Ukraine, previously qualified under Part. 1, Art. 115 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine - premeditated murder. The case was heard in the Ukrainian courts.

After Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Hayser Jemilev was unlawfully taken from the territory of Crimea, and proceedings in the case were continued by the Russian court in Krasnodar.

A jury acquitted Hayser Jemilev on charges of premeditated murder, but the jury found him guilty of possessing weapons and ammunition, as well as causing death by negligence.

On June 10, 2015, the Krasnodar Regional Court of the Russian Federation sentenced Hayser Jemilev to 5 years of imprisonment in a general regime penal colony.

In Ukraine, Hayser Jemilev was convicted in absentia of involuntary manslaughter for 3 years and 8 months, and a request for his extradition was sent to Russia. But the Krasnodar Regional Court dismissed the claim for termination of the case due to the appropriate sentence in a Ukrainian court.
