According to Pashayev, he made the decision to become a deputy last year.
- I submitted documents, I was engaged in agitation in the Moscow City Duma. But then I saw that this was not my scope - I was used to working on a large scale, - Pashaev said.
He clarified that he "received offers", but "was not used to working for Uncle Vasya". According to Pashayev, he refused to negotiate with the "administration": "When you start talking, then you begin to depend on them, then you will execute orders". The lawyer stressed that he did not agree to the proposed conditions even in exchange for the fact that "there will be no problems with signatures".
As for the State Duma, Pashayev once again stressed that "the scope is different, the scale is different", because his final choice fell on the State Duma.
How exactly and from which party the deprived of the status of a lawyer Pashayev is going to receive the status of a deputy - Pashayev did not specify.
Let us recall that the council of the North Ossetian Bar Association deprived Elman Pashayev of his lawyer status after considering his disciplinary case. Moreover, this deprivation is the fourth for Pashayev. Previously, he was deprived of his status in Moscow, the Krasnodar Territory and the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District.
Note that Mikhail Yefremov during the trial and after it twice refused the services of Elman Pashayev. He complained about the actions of his lawyer and said that he "set him up". Yefremov was sentenced to eight years in a general regime colony.
