Detained former Crimean MP

Задержан бывший крымский депутат

Militiamen detained the former Deputy of the Supreme Council of Crimea Vasily Ganesha. Previously, he was sentenced to 12 years deprivation of will for treason, reported in a Telegram to the Prosecutor’s office of ARC.

“At the time of entry of verdict into legal force not convicted was in custody and wrongly remained on the loose”, – is spoken in the message.

Ganesha after the arrest was sent to the Kyiv detention facility.

Recall that the first time the former Vice-mayor of Feodosia and ex-Deputy Ganesha detained April 28, 2015 with the departure from Crimea. The ARC Prosecutor’s office accused him that he was instrumental in Russia’s subversive activities on the territory of Crimea and thereby committed treason. The Crimean politician has called the charges baseless, and said that he was the only Deputy who voted against a “referendum” on the “annexation” of Crimea to Russia.

The court in the case of Ganesha began in August of 2015. In February 2017, when before sentencing was a few meetings, the High Council of justice dismissed the head of the jury Alexander Fedyuk. Was elected the new presiding judge in the case, and the trial of Ganesham began again.

July 27, 2018, the court acquitted Ganesha part of the charges. Initially, there were three episodes: vote for the “referendum”, a vote for the Constitution of Crimea and participation in elections of local self-government. The court agreed with the defendant that he actually voted against the referendum.

From January 2016 Hanys is under house arrest. In November last year, he was sentenced to 12 years in prison. In January 2020 the Kiev appellate court upheld the verdict to Vasily Gansu.
