During the court hearing it was also revealed that Nabiev has not testified against organizers of mass riots. However, according to Ahtem Chiygoz, such testimony is in his verdict.

In addition, Eskender Nabiev added that he has not broken into the parliament building and has not even seen evidence of damage of any property.

Though, the court ordered him to cover the losses caused by the property damage of the Verkhovna Rada of Crimea, which occurred on this day.

Also on this day, court has questioned Arsen Yunusov, who has not given significant testimony citing a bad memory and inattention. Another convict, Talat Yunusov exercised his right to refuse to testify.

As a reminder, a rally of supporters and opponents of Ukraine’s unity happened three years ago in front of the Crimean parliament. The emergence of aggressive representatives of the pro-Russian activists provoked a series of small fights and clashes resulting in deaths of two people and injuries of dozens.

After the annexation of Crimea, Russian law enforcement authorities have initiated a criminal against the participants of the pro-Ukrainian rally.

At present, two were convicted and another six Crimean Tatars are under judicial investigation, including Ahtem Chiygoz, the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People.

On February 24, International Expert Panel stated that Russia has no right to investigate the events, which happened in front of the Crimean parliament. They called the investigation in Crimea as politically motivated and encouraged the Ukrainian law enforcement authorities to investigate the events of that day.
