About 20 Crimean Tatars detained in Crimea
About 20 Crimean Tatars, who were protesting against illegal searches, were detained in the Crimea.
As reported by lawyer Emil Kurbedinov and journalist Anton Naumlyuk on Facebook social network.
“Projections on the increasing repressions against public activists are being confirmed every day! The amount of detained increased to 20 people, including those who provided coverage about the searches!” – wrote Kurbedinov.
At the same time, journalist and photographer Anton Naumlyuk wrote that Tatars were detained when they came to the house of Marlen Mustafayev in Kamianka, where security forces were conducting searches.
According to Naumlyuk, Mustafayev was detained on his way to work and was taken to the Center for Combating Extremism. Afterwards, security forces went to search his house, where his wife remained with a 4-months old child.
Naumlyuk added that Osman Arifm, Remzi Bekirov, Ruslan Suleymanov, Izetov Rieza, Alim Karimov, Walid Abu Farid and Seyran Murtazayev were among detained at the site of search of Mustafayev’s house.
“Before the detainments police officers announced on a megaphone that those who are present are violating the law on carrying out mass events”, – noted Naumlyuk.
Later in a video reported that he is on his way to the Center for Combating Extremism to find out what Mustafayev is charged with and what was seized during the search.
Kurbedinov suggestes that Mustafayev can be sentenced to an administrative arrest, as happened to himself in January of this year.
Lawyers also have information that the detained Crimean Tatars are illegally photographed and had their fingerprints taken at the police department.
