Protection of the journalist drew attention to the questionable validity of the applied to the case of psychological and linguistic expertise. In particular, the lawyer Tumas Misakyan said that examination of the Khakass professionals was issued on the forged letterhead of the Khakass University, as evidenced by the response from the University. “Does that expertise to trust after this?” — said the lawyer.

the Lawyer Vitaly Cherkasov said that the investigation and prosecution procedure pulled examination. The first two examinations had significant contradictions: after that, the Prosecutor’s office returned the case for further investigation in SU SK.
