The lawyer of Ahtem Chiygoz, one of the defendants in the case of "February, 26," said his client has been illegally kept in custody for two days.

- It is the second day Ahtem Chiygoz, Ali Asanov and Mustafa Degermendzhi are being illegally kept by Russian authorities in the detention center in Simferopol without any judgment, the lawyer wrote on Facebook.

- I will call it as it is. Yesterday their doubtful former status of the accused ones changed into a quite tangible and real status of the hostages, wrote the lawyer Nikolai Polozov.

Yesterday, March 9, Russian lawyer Nikolai Polozov informed that the detention period of Ahtem Chiygoz, Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, expired.
