KRASNODAR, June 10. /TASS/. A court in the southern Russian city of Krasnodar has sentenced Khaiser Dzhemilev, a son of a Ukrainian parliament member, to five years in prison for an involuntary manslaughter, a TASS correspondent reported from the courtroom on Wednesday.
In May 2013 Dzhemilev shot dead his friend Fevzi Edemov in the Crimean town of Bakhchisaray and was facing up to seven years in jail.
Last week a jury found him guilty of an involuntary manslaughter.
However, prosecutors said they had "presented enough evidence to find the defendant guilty of involuntary manslaughter" and asked the Krasnodar territorial court to give him five years and six months in prison.
Dzhemilev's case was first investigated in Crimea but was sent to the Russian Supreme Court after the peninsula's reunification with Russia in March 2014. The Supreme Court ruled that the jury trial should take place in Krasnodar.
His father Mustafa Dzhemilev, a former head of the Mejilis (assembly) of the Crimean Tatar people, was later given a five-year entry ban to Russia.
