Today, the 25th of November, leader of the Crimean Tatars and people’s Deputy of Ukraine Mustafa Dzhemilev’s son Hajser Dzhemilev has emerged from Russian prison.

This was announced by Dzhemilev’s lawyer Nikolay Polozov.

“Hajser is free!” he wrote in Facebook.

Earlier Polozov said that the Astrakhan Court of the Russian Federation had issued a decision on lifting the administrative supervision over Hajser Dzhemilev, allowing him to leave Russia.

Hajser Dzhemilev shot family’s friend Fevzi Jedemov in the yard of his house in Bakhchisarai in May 2013. Russian investigative authorities decided to reinvestigate this case after the annexation of Crimea.

Hajser was taken from the Simferopol detention facility to the Krasnodar region of the Russian Federation, where a jury trial found him guilty in killing by recklessness and sentenced to five years of imprisonment. Russia’s Supreme Court commuted the sentence to a year and a half.
