SIMFEROPOL/AQMESCIT (QHA) -

Under the court decision, the FSB prisoner Arsen Dzhepparov is to stay in jail for another two months, Anna Bogacheva wrote on Facebook.

On April 18, 2016, Russian security forces arrested two Crimean Tatars Arsen Dzhepparov and Refat Alimov after searches of their homes in the village of Krasnokamenka (Big Yalta) in Crimea. They were accused of involvement in "Hizb ut-Tahrir" organization, banned in Russia.

The so-called "Hizb ut-Tahrir" case has become the hallmark of the FSB struggle against Muslim dissidents in Crimea. Under the pretext of suspicion of terrorism and calling their repressive actions as struggle with extremism, the Russian security forces burst into the houses, conduct illegal searches and detentions.

November 17, Arsen Dzhepparov was sent to an involuntary psychiatric examination.
