During today's hearing in the case of the Deputy Chairman of the Crimean Tatar Mejlis Ahtem Chiygoz, judges have announced the schedule of court sessions for November, lawyer Nikolai Polozov told a QHA correspondent.

“Now, the trial will be held more intensively for the reason that instead of the previously established schedule: three hearings a week, they will be held four times a week from Monday to Thursday. One gets the feeling that the judges want to speed up the process, may be in order to reach a verdict to the anniversary of the events on February 26,” he believes.
