I had spent almost a week not knowing what was happening outside my prison cell, whether my family could hire a defence lawyer or not. Then the cell door opened and I was escorted to meet my lawyer.
– My name is Vladimir Sadekov, I’m your defence lawyer, and your family send their regards.
This is how I met lawyer Sadekov. After the necessary formalities and discussing the facts of my case he honestly told me that I had to endure, that they would try to get me out of prison at the earliest possible time, but it would be very complicated, next to impossible. Upon hearing such an honest speech, I put my trust in a person I literally barely knew and never regretted this decision during my seven months in prison.
