Kuban lawyers, and farmers: the Dismissal of the judge Kahalewai — still only a hint of justice

Lawyers and farmers of Krasnodar Krai, the opponents of the former judges of the Krasnodar regional court Elena Kahalewai, whose powers have terminated prematurely by the Supreme qualification panel of judges of the Russian Federation, believe that her dismissal — not the triumph of justice, but only the first possible step toward her. His feelings they shared with journalists at the Moscow press center “Rosbalta”.

As noted by the advocate Alexey Salmin, has long engaged in “the business Kahalewai”, the removal of the infamous judge from the work made possible thanks to the principled position of the President of the Supreme court Vyacheslav Lebedev, Supreme qualification Collegium of judges, Chairman of the Krasnodar regional court Alexey Shipilov, and many people with a much more simple title.

However, as emphasized by the Salmin and his colleague-the lawyer Dmitry Novikov, worked for many years judge in the Krasnodar region, the dismissal of Kahalewai under the formal pretext of absenteeism does not mean the victory over large-scale corruption in the Kuban regional judicial system. According to counsel Salmina, violations have taken place under the previous leadership of the Krasnodar regional court.

It is, according to lawyers and farmers, that for many years many of the Kuban farmers have become victims of obtaining fertile land, and their account was enriched by the unscrupulous members of law enforcement and the judiciary. “On the territory of Krasnodar region was pressed at 200 thousand shareholders, about one million hectares of land, — said the farmer Elena Jukova. — People over 20 years of trying to return the land, which by law can not escape anywhere, and can only be inherited. This so-called “unclaimed share” — but they are not unclaimed, they are simply the people stole. A managed the land to make the property rightly acquisitive entity”.

the Fact that the judge Hahaleva formally punished for absenteeism, as suggested by the lawyer Novikov, is a compromise solution, however, the investigation of how the specific judges, and many decisions of the Krasnodar justice, in his opinion, must continue. “She was for many years a member of the Presidium of the regional court, expresses the opinion of Dmitry Novikov. — If the Supreme court will agree, and they will announce the materials of the Investigative Committee in my case… 10 years of work of the Presidium of the Krasnodar regional court fly in the trash. Thousands of people shall be released. New judges will be forced to reconsider all these cases and decisions, and because the Statute of limitations came out, one does not have to be punished. There was a terrible legal disaster that to this day are hiding from us.”

the Lawyers and the farmers expressed their determination to continue the struggle for justice.
