The main result of the judicial session on May, 13th in Maykop on the litigation about the newspaper "Youth of Adygeya” and the head of the republican brunch of Rospotrebnadzor Aslan Aghirov became that preliminary hearings ended and on May, 20 there will be consideration of the case in essence. The sudden thing on that day was that Aghirov’s party did not submit a new statement of claim as he had practiced earlier.
At the litigation in court there were present about 20 persons - supporters of the newspaper and Bersirov’s family. The claimant was not present at the hearing, as he was represented by lawyer Bella Aghirova and two young men, probably, security guards of the lawyer. Moreover, the lawyer filed a petition for representing the claimant by her in his absence further.
The party of the respondents – "Youth of Adygeya” (more exact, two its founders - Komsomol and the Union of young lawyers) submitted on that day several petitions and one objection: about cancellation of the first statement of claim in connection with filing to the case of the second (specified), about making a duty of the claimant to pay the state duty as the new statement of claim was submitted - about involving of witnesses and others.
The court did not satisfy the petition for cancelling of the first statement of claim, for payment of the state duty, the copies of reports of witnesses’ interrogation about condition of the cars after the accident. Simultaneously with it the court filed objection of the newspaper, a photo of the cars of participants of the road accident, the petition for a call of witnesses.
Let’s remind, Aslan Aghirov had brought an action against the newspaper "Youth of Adygeya” on protection of his honour and dignity. In his opinion, the newspaper insulted him, asking a question about the accident on November, 4th, 2008 with participation of the claimant and having published it. As a result of that crash there were lost four members of the family of Bersirovs, and the criminal proceeding after it is still on.
Let’s also remind, the first hearings on litigation "Aghirov against newspaper” passed in Maykop town court on March, 19th of the current year.
