The occupation prosecutor's office demanded that Chubarov be sentenced to 9 years in a maximum security penal colony
The occupying prosecutor's office of Crimea has appealed the verdict of the "Supreme Court" of Crimea, which passed in absentia the chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov. The "prosecutor's office" wants Chubarov to be sentenced to 9 years in a maximum security penal colony.
The lawyer Nikolay Polozov reported about it to "Crimea. Realities" on July 30.
An appeal, signed by "public prosecutor" Diana Yevtushenko, demanding a change in the sentence of the head of the Mejlis, was sent to Russia's Third Court of Appeal in Sochi, which will consider the appeal of the defenders and the "prosecutor".
"According to the prosecutor's office, the sentence is unreasonably lenient. The prosecutor's office demanded to exclude from the descriptive and motivating part of the sentence the court's indication of the circumstances mitigating Chubarov's punishment, namely positive feedback on Chubarov's personal qualities from supporters of the union - Mejlis citizens. She demanded that Chubarov be sentenced to 9 years in a maximum security penal colony", - Polozov said.
