Server Mustafayev demands to recover material damage from the pre-trial detention center

March 31, 2023

Server Mustafayev’s lawsuit against the pre-trial detention center of Novocherkassk, which is connected with illegal actions by the administration of pre-trial detention center-3, is being considered by the Novocherkassk City Court. It is reported by the Crimean Solidarity.

The political prisoner suffered material damage due to the fact that he failed to issue a power of attorney for his relatives, since the head of the pre-trial detention center refused to sign the order. Mustafayev was forced to invite a notary to receive a notarized power of attorney, which includes: the cost of train tickets, to and from the place, a taxi in the direction of Michurinsk-Tambov and back, the cost of the power of attorney and the departure of the notary, as well as preliminary consultation with a lawyer. The total amount of these expenses is 37,641.9 rubles, the cost of a trip to Novocherkassk with the preparation of the text of a power of attorney is 10,128 rubles.

All complaints and lawsuits from him were also not transferred.

“The defense side specified the stated claims for the recovery of material damage suffered by Server Mustafayev, taking into account the illegal actions of the pre-trial detention center”,- Mustafayev’s lawyer, LiliHemedzhi, specified.

During the court session, the political prisoner spoke clearly about the grounds indicated in the claim document. Prisoners of the second Bakhchysarai group were involved as witnesses: Server Zakiryaev confirmed Mustafaev’s evidence about the illegal actions of the pre-trial detention center, for example, that violations of political prisoners were recorded by the administration without notification or warning. It was also not possible to obtain a power of attorney to represent the interests of relatives.

The second witness, Seyran Saliiev, was unable to speak because he could not be turned off for technical reasons.

The next session is scheduled for April 4th.

We remind you that on October 11, 2017, in the city of Bakhchysarai, the occupants conducted mass searches in 6 houses of Crimean Tatars – Marlen Asanov, Seyran Saliiev, Timur Ibrahimov, Memet Belyalov, Ernes Ametov, Server Zakiryaev. Everyone was detained. They were charged under article 205.5 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation Participation in the activities of an organization that, in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation, is recognized as terrorist.

On September 16, the Southern District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don announced the verdict on the defendants in the second Bakhchysarai case of Hizb ut-Tahrir.
