Today, August 8, the judicial debate on the case against Ahtem Chyigoz continues, where the "court" will hear the defense.
The correspondent of LB.ua reports, that lawyer Nikolai Polozov has already begun his speech, in which he recalls the supremacy of international law over Russian legislation, including the UN Resolution on the territorial integrity of Ukraine and condemning the Russian occupation of Crimea as part of Ukraine and the violation of human rights on the peninsula.
Apart from lawyer Polozov and Prosecutor Supryaga, about 25 listeners are present in the courtroom.
Previously QHA reported that at a court hearing on August 7, the Prosecutor of the Kremlin-controlled "Supreme Court of the Crimea" Anastasia Supryaga requested 8 years of imprisonment for Akhtem Chyigoz.
Later the meeting was unexpectedly postponed to 9:30 am on August 8. The official reason was ignition of the power cable in the courthouse.
On August 1, after 150 meetings, the "Supreme Court of the Crimea" completed the judicial investigation in the case against Akhtem Chiygoz.
Reference: Akhtem Chiygoz was detained in January 2015 in the Crimea, on accusations of organizing and participating in mass riots on February 26, 2014. Then, outside the building of the Supreme Council of Crimea, a rally was held in support of the territorial integrity of Ukraine. He has been detained for more than two years in the remand prison. The Chiygoz case is considered by the court within the framework of a falsified "case of February 26".
