(QHA) -

Another Crimean Tatar, Edem Ebulisov, who participated in May 3 events, when thousands of Crimean Tatars met their leader Mustafa Jemilev at the Crimean Ukrainian checkpoint, was arrested in Crimea.

Human rights activist Emil Kurbedinov wrote this in Facebook.

“He will be likely imputed violence against police officers. He has reportedly beaten policemen with a flag”- Kurbedinov wrote.

Ebulisov’s arrest comes a month after Tair Smedlyaev--brother of the head of the Central Election Commission of the Kurultay (Crimean Tatar National Congress) Zair Smedlyaev -- was arrested in Stary Krym.

Earlier, two Crimean Tatars were also arrested on charges of inflicting serious injuries to police officers carrying out their duties on May 3 this year, when thousands of Crimean Tatars arrived at Ukrainian-Crimean border to meet their leader Mustafa Jemilev who had been banned from entering Crimea for 5 years, accused of “extremism”.
