Lawyer Mykolay Polozov has been detained by FSB officers in the occupied Crimea. This was reported by journalist Anton Naumlyuk on Twitter.
According to the journalist, Polozova is being driven in for questioning management.
"FSB wants to exclude Polozov from Umerov’s case as a defender. It is also an attempt to intimidate, so that he stopped to work in the Crimea with affairs of the Crimean Tatars",Naumlyuk wrote.
Earlier Polozov, who represented the interests of the Deputy Chairman of Mejlis Ilmi Umerov and Ahtem Chiygoz in "the case of February 26," and the son of Mustafa Dzhemilev, said that the Russian FSB launched investigations against him. He called it “hunting" and connected it with Chiygoz case.
