Kyiv: The lawyer of the deputy chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Akhtem Chyigoz Nikolay Polozov today, July 18, said that the party "Russian Unity" fabricated an application for holding its rally on February 26, 2014.
At that time the party was headed by the current so-called "chairman of the Crimea" Sergei Aksenov.
"The prosecution starts happily collecting the papers, they say, the Mejlis submitted a message 45 minutes before the event - at 9:15 on February 26, 2014, and the application of the party" Russian Unity "is dated February 25, 2014. According to the logic of the accusation, the application of the party is more timely than the application of the Mejlis, and therefore, the meeting of the Mejlis is unauthorized, "Polozov said.
According to the lawyer, the application of the pro-Russian party was filed in general after the rally.
"The application of the" Russian Unity "party, according to the stamp of the Simferopol City Council, was registered on February 28, 2014. That is, two days after the events. This completely destroys the position of the prosecution in the part of holding an "unauthorized" rally by the Mejlis, "the human rights activist said.
Chiygoz was detained in January 2015 for participating in a rally for the territorial integrity of Ukraine in front of the Supreme Council of the Crimea in February 2014. The head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov was not allowed to the Crimea in late May to participate in the lawsuit against Ahtem Chiygoz.
