Zaire Akadyrov, a Crimean Tatar journalist, told about the details of receiving a summons.

“Today, 22 January, police officers came to my house around 8.00 a.m. when I was not at home. They informed my family that I was summoned to the Prosecutor’s Office of the Zheleznodorozhny District of Simferopol. However they didn’t specify the reason. The police officers handed over a summons and left. The document stated that L.Kardash, the prosecutor of the Zheleznodorozhny District summoned me (!) at 11:30 on January 21. It also noted that ‘the failure to appear in response to a summons issued by the prosecutor entails administrative liability.  What was interesting about it was that the summons was appointed for the past time,” Zaire Akadyrov wrote on his Facebook page. 

Just a reminder: Police officers took Zaire Akadyrov out the hall of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Crimea during the hearings into the February 26 case, and detained him for several hours, for unknown reasons.
