Nikolai Polozov, lawyer of the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ahtem Chiygoz, goes to Kyiv to make up for evidence of the defence, he told a QHA correspondent.

“A number of evidence cannot be obtained in Crimea; the defence will supplement them, as well as in Kyiv. This includes both the written evidence and testimony of witnesses,” he said.

The 33rd hearing into the case of Ahtem Chiygoz, the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean, has been held in Crimea today. The defendant cannot attend it due to discriminatory provisions on the remote participation in the 1st instance process.

Lawyer Nikolai Polozov suggested earlier that judges would pass sentence upon Ahtem Chiygoz to the anniversary of the events on February 26.
