So he explains the planned hearing of the Kremlin-controlled court to conduct investigative actions in relation to him, Crimea.Realities portal reports.
“This is an attempt to oust me from Crimea, to isolate me, to make me worry about my freedom and life, make me not come here. And then to use my example for showing the lawyers, who want to speak out in defense of human rights in Crimea, protection of the Crimean Tatars’ interests, that such activities are very dangerous, ‘If we can oust such a well-known Moscow lawyer, you will be rubbed to powder’, such a message is sent by Russian authorities to all those who seek to protect the rights of the Crimean Tatars,” Polozov said.
As a reminder, November 8, 2016, the Kremlin-controlled Supreme Court of the Crimea will consider appeal of the prosecutor for permission to start investigative activities in relation to lawyer Polozova.
Nikolai Polozov is a Russian lawyer, who is involved in several high-profile cases in Russia and annexed Crimea, in particular, in the case of Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ahtem Chiygoz.
