FSB forced the Crimean Tatar to dig his own grave in order to testify against “Hizb ut-Tahrir”
FSB officers have taken Crimean Tatar Emil Mukhtemerov, who on March 15 was detained in Feodosia, to outside the city, threatened him, tried to plant something in his pocket and forced to dig a pit for himself.
Lawyer Edem Semedliaev reported in a comment to the “CrimeaSOS” website of the QirimInfo that by such actions FSB is trying to force Emil to testify in the Yalta “Hizb ut-Tahrir” case.
Activist Abdullah Yakubov, who was the first to report about the detention of Mukhtemerov on social networks, also described the details of detention in the commentary to QirimInfo.
According to him, Emil was brought to the FSB department in Feodosia after detention. He was not registered there, no detention reports were drawn and he was not interrogated. He was kept in the department for a long time. After some time he was taken to a clean field at the distance of 80 km from Feodosia. He was threatened and FSB officers tried to plant something in his pocket.
Then they said: “Dig a hole, we will bury you in it”. In such manner, they wanted to force Emil to testify in the Yalta “Hizb ut-Tahrir” case. Emil replied that he has nothing to say about this. Then they just left him in the field and left.
“Later, we called the Chief of Feodosia Department of the FSB. He denied this information and has not commented on the actions of his employees. Human rights defenders are currently discussing the incident with Emil. Emil’s video message will be published in the nearest time”, – said Yakubov.
As a reminder, on March 15, FSB officers dressed in civilian clothes detained Crimean Tatar Emil Mukhtemerov in Feodosia. By the evening it became known that he was left in the field 80 km away from Feodosia, near the village Zybino.
