The “railway district court of Simferopol” in Crimea yesterday, March 20 was transferred consideration of the case of the Crimean journalist, author, Radio “Freedom” Nicholas Semeny on 3 April.
This was reported by “Crimean human rights group” in Facebook, citing “Crimea.Realities”.
The court postponed in connection with the petition of protection about the accessibility and transparency of the judicial process. The lawyer Alexander Popkov has appealed to the court with a request to provide a larger courtroom due to the fact that not all journalists were able to get to the gym. He also noted that he and his colleague, lawyer Emil Kubedinova not created working conditions – according to him, there is not enough space to spread out papers, and the defendant no table to work with documents, the report said.
“Prosecutor” Svetlana UDI strongly opposed the declared petition. She also spoke about the fact that “the next time the protection will require coffee in bed”.
According to the lawyer Emile Kubedinova, a small hall for meetings was not chosen by chance, according to him, it is “common practice for resonant political Affairs in the Crimea.”
Recall, human rights activists called on the Russian authorities to immediately release Sushchenko and semen.
