The so-called Sukhum city court in unrecognized Abkhazia has extended the detention of leader of the "DNR" Pyatnashka armed formation Akhra Avidzba until May 5. This was reported by Sputnik.
The defense side submitted an application to appeal against the decision to the so-called Supreme Court. However, it was decided on April 12 to disqualify the so-called judge during the consideration of the appeal on the grounds that he could not consider the complaint due to family ties.
Akhra Avidzba is accused of illegal acquisition, storage, transportation and carrying of firearms and ammunition.
As reported by OstroV, he was detained by the law enforcement officers of unrecognized Abkhazia on March 4 after he refused to disband his armed guards, consisting of the "DNR" militants. An arsenal of weapons was seized from the militant during the arrest. Later, the militant was arrested by the decision of the so-called court. Five of his guards were also taken into custody. They allegedly planned to take part in an attempted coup d'état.
