In Russia, session of trial on early release of blogger Memedeminov was postponed

02.08.2020, 18:28

In Russia, Bogaev rayon court in Rostov oblast postponed consideration of motion on early release of the Crimean blogger, civil journalist Nariman Memedeminov. 

This was reported by Krym.Realii, with referral to the lawyer of journalist, Edem Semedliaev, as a source.

“They postponed consideration of the motion because the motion was filed via video conference. Yet this court, it turns out, is lacking capabilities to do it. So it was postponed to August 12, 10:00”, the lawyer said.

In the beginning of June, the activist, civil journalist and media coordinator of “Crimean Solidarity” Nariman Memedeminov was transferred to prison settlement in Rostov oblast. 

The journalist and blogger Nariman Memedeminov was sentenced on October 2, 2019 by the Southern Military District Court of Russian city Rostov-on-Don to two and a half years of prison, who was accused of public appeals to terrorism. 

On October 1, 2019 Memedeminov made his last statement, where he called the justice in Russia “stereotyped”, and made a call to the journalists to continue their work and to continue their work of informing about the situation in Crimea and about trials to which the residents of the peninsula are subjected to.
