October 27, judge of the so-called "Supreme Court of Crimea" Galina Redko upheld the verdict of the Simferopol "Kiev district court" against the Ukrainian political prisoner Andrei Kolomiets. According to his lawyer Taras Omelchenko, the judge rejected all motions without even retiring to the deliberation room.
However, the feature of the hearing was that it was held in the Ukrainian language.
Andrei Kolomiets intends to appeal against this decision, "the Supreme Court of Crimea."
The Judge Redko already came in the sight of human rights activists as a proponent of extending the detention to the Deputy of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ahtem Chiygoz.
Andrei Kolomiets, a resident of Kiev region, born June 10, 1993, was sentenced by a former judge of Ukraine Mikhail Belousov, was found guilty and sentenced to 10 years' imprisonment in a strict regime colony. He was charged with the alleged attempted murder of two former employees of "Berkut" units during the events on the Maidan in Kiev. He was judged under several articles of the Criminal Code: Art. 105 of the Criminal Code - murder of two or more persons (unfinished), Art. 228 - possession of drugs, Art. 30 - attempt to commit a crime.
The Ukrainian was detained on the territory of Kabardino-Balkaria, and then transported to Crimea. Human rights defenders and lawyer believe the case is completely fabricated and politically motivated.
