The Federal Chamber of Lawyers of the Russian Federation has decided to annul the status of a lawyer, recently again received by the former defender of Mikhail Efremov, Elman Pashayev, reports TASS.
«On September 15, at a meeting in Makhachkala, the Council of the Federal Chamber of Lawyers of the Russian Federation adopted a decision annulling the status of lawyer Elman Pashayev, — TASS quotes the statement of the FPA.
The official website of the chamber says that “The Council of the FPA of the Russian Federation stated the existence of fatal violations when Elman Pashaev received the status of a lawyer.”
Pashaev told TASS that he was not in course of cancellation of his status. In addition, he does not agree with the wording, since according to the law, the status can be terminated or suspended, but not canceled in any way.
Pashayev was deprived of the status of a lawyer four times. The last time this happened was in 2020 in connection with statements in the press in the case of Mikhail Efremov, whom he defended. In September 2022, Pashayev again received the status of a lawyer.
