Among other petitions of the defense of Ilmi Umerov, which the "court" rejected at the preliminary hearing on May 31, was the request of the lawyer to include of the famous Russian dissident Aleksandr Padrabinek in defense.

This was announced by the results of the meeting, Edem Semedlyaev.

According to lawyer Semedlyaev, Aleksandr Podrabinek, who is a friend of Ilmi Umerov, expressed a desire to participate in the case as a defender himself.

"We also filed a submission on his readiness and willingness to participate as a defender. However, the court regarded it impractical. And offered to consider the petition when Aleksandr himself will come to the meeting to make sure he is a real person and see his documents.”

The lawyer concluded that at today's meeting the "court" did not hear the side of the defense.

“The next meeting was scheduled for June 7. The hearing will be open.”
