On June 7, Sudak City Court dropped charges against Seytmamut Seytumerov, one of the four Crimean Tatars arrested on May 18, the Day of the Commemoration of Victims of the 1944 Deportation, QHA cites its own source as saying.
“Sudak City Court dropped charges against Seytmamut Seytumerov accused under Article 20.2 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation. One more victory!” the source said.
The hearing for Ablyakim Ablyakimov and Enver Chaush is still ongoing.
Earlier on, Sudak City Court dropped charges against Alim Muslyadinov.
At 2 pm, the hearing for the three other defendants restarted.
Just a reminder: police ordered Crimean Tatars from Sudak, who drove around the town with national flags, to report to the police station for holding an unsanctioned rally, which qualifies as an administrative offense.
Police also arrested motorists taking part in a May 18 rally commemorating victims of the 1944 deportation.
