The results of three expertises concerning the case of Crimean Tatar Edem Bekirov, who is accused of allegedly unlawful keeping of ammunition and explosives, were passed to the court in annexed Crimea on May 7. Eleonora Bekirova, the daughter of Bekirov, posted this on Facebook.
Bekirova clarified that the forensic-biological, psychiatric, forensic-ballistic and explosive-technical expertises have been conducted.
According to the results of the psychiatric expertise, my father is considered to be liable. And we do agree with this one. However, with results of two others we absolutely disagree,” she wrote.
According to Bekirova, the ballistic expertise (explosive-technical) and biological one showed that on the seized ammunition and explosives there are fingerprints of Bekirov and the latent witness - Karim Memetov.
“However, the biological mass of my dad was taken at the very first day before the official announcement of the detention. Under non-procedural circumstances, violently, without the presence of a lawyer and witnesses,” Bekirova outlined.
The fingerprints as if have been detected on the tape, which wrapped ammunition and explosives, and a rope that fixed a backpack with them.
“Naturally, the lawyer and my father expressed our protest against the results of expertises. This unfair and absurd! Apparently, they used that biological mass, which was illegally taken on the first day,” the daughter added.
As we reported earlier, the health situation of Crimean Tatar political prisoner Bekirov is critical.
Russian law enforcers detained Crimean Tatar Edem Bekirov at the entrance to occupied Crimea on December 12, 2018. Edem was heading from mainland Ukraine to Crimea to visit his 78-year-old mother and relatives.
According to Ukrainian MP Refat Chubarov, Bekirov was arrested during passport control on the territory controlled by the Russian law enforcers. Later, Chubarov noted that the detainee was taken to Russia’s Security Service office in annexed Simferopol.
