Bekirova’s daughter reported that the biological samples were taken from Bekirov on the first day before the official announcement of the detention, in a non-procedural setting, by force, without the presence of a lawyer and witnesses.
In total, three examinations were conducted, their results were made public during the so-called court session, which took place on May 7.
On her Facebook page, the political prisoner's daughter, Eleonora Bekirova, wrote that a forensic biological, psychiatric, as well as forensic, ballistic and explosive technical examinations were conducted. According to the results of the psychiatric examination, Bekirov was recognized as sane, and the defense did not agree with the results of the other two.
“Ballistic (explosive) and biological examinations on the subject of whether the seized ammunition and explosives had imprints of my father and a hidden witness (Memetov), found that biological samples of both are present. And the objects are really explosive,” said the political prisoner’s daughter.
She also reported that the biological samples were allegedly found on the scotch tape that was used to roll up the ammunition, and the rope that fixed the backpack in which it was found. According to de facto investigators, the cartridges and explosives allegedly belong to Edem Bekirov.
Recall that Edem Bekirov, a Crimean Tatar activist, is suspected by occupation authorities of committing a crime under Part 2 of Art. 222 and Part 2 of Art. 221.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (storage and transfer of explosives and ammunition); allegedly Bekirov distributed and transported more than 10 kg of TNT and 190 ball-cartridges. On April 26, the de facto Supreme Court in the occupied Crimea rejected the appeal of political prisoner Edem Bekirov's defense, and upheld the decision of the court of first instance unchanged. So, the measure of restraint Bekirov remains the same.
