The so-called ‘prosecutor’s office’ of the Russian-annexed Crimea, which considers the case of Crimean Tatar activist Akhtem Chiygoz, insists on eight years-long imprisonment for the convict. Nikolai Polozov, the Russian lawyer representing Chyigoz posted that on Facebook.
As is known, Akhtem Chiygoz , the deputy leader of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people was detained in January 2015. He is charged with organization and participation in the mass disturbance near the building of the Crimean parliament; these events took place in February 2014, as disguised units of the Russian regular army captured Crimea. Chiygoz is one of the six Crimean Tatar activists who faced charges in this particular case.
