The Head of the CEC of the Kurultai of the Crimean Tatar People, Zair Smedlyaev wrote about an upcoming court hearing.
- Today at 1.00 p.m. in the city of Simferopol, in St. Pavlenko, 2, the Court of Appeal is to hear the case against four Crimean Muslims- Emir Usein Kuku, Vadim Siruk, Enver Bekirov and Muslim Aliyev, who are charged with terrorism under Section 205.5, Part 1, Part 2, Smedlyaev wrote on Facebook.
February 11 a wave of searches swept the Crimean Tatars’ houses in order to discredit them as "terrorists". Often the security forces acted aggressively – broke windows and forcibly took away people.
During the interrogation, the detainees were asked whether they or their friends are terrorists, whether they engage in any extremist organization and are going to Syria.
Eight of the twelve detainees have already been released, while Emir Usein Kuku, Vadim Siruk, Enver Bekirov and Muslim Aliev are still being held in custody.
The detainees- Enver Bekirov, Emir Usein Kuku, Vadim Siruk and Muslim Aliev are socially active citizens. In particular, prior to being arrested Emir Usein Kuku was engaged in human rights activities and recorded human rights violations in Crimea.
