Today, on June 12, the Simferopol district court held another hearing in Ilmi Umerov’s case. Lawyer Edem Semedlyaev revealed the details of the hearing in a comment for QirimInfo.
According to the lawyer, the court session started with reading out of the report of the bailiff who had been instructed to compulsory deliver witness Bondariuk, who had repeatedly failed to appear in court.
«The bailiff reported that the witness had a little child and no one to babysit», – the lawyer told.
After that, there was the petition of the Prosecutor on watching a piece of the material evidence – a CD with the recorded TV-show with participation of Ilmi Umerov. Interpreter Saledinov conducted simultaneous interpreting of the video record.
«We noticed a number of discrepancies between the translation that he had provided to the FSB investigator, and the interpreting he had been conducting during the session of the court», – Edem Semedlyaev said.
Ilmi Umerov’s daughter Aishe Umerova carried out live text coverage of the court session on her Facebook page.
«Thus, he [the interpreter] confirmed what the defense keeps saying – about numerous frauds and falsifications in the criminal case. Due to such «mistakes» of these «specialists» at the most important moment, the man is facing 5 years in jail», – Aishe Umerova commented upon the inaccuracies of the interpreting.
«Besides, Saledinov is a German philologist by his main education, and he studied Crimean Tatar only at the retraining course in the Crimean advanced training institute», – the activist added.
The next session of the court is scheduled on July 19, 2.30 p.m.
