Mustafa Dzhemilev, the leader of the Crimean Tatar people, continues to be persecuted by Russian law enforcement. The case against him will be sent to court without notifying the accused and defense attorneys.
The parties will not receive any notifications. Dzhemilev’s lawyer Mykola Polozov reported about it. He said that the Criminal Procedure Code of the Russian Federation had been violated. The process of drawing up an indictment and transferring the case was not followed.
Polozov was not notified of such a decision. Dzhemilev himself also does not know about the plans of law enforcement officers of the Russian Federation.
Dzhemilev was charged in absentia on April 13. He is accused of illegally crossing the state border of the Russian Federation, illegal handling of weapons, and other contrived crimes.
