SUDAK (QHA) -

A trial of four Crimean Tatars, who participated in a car rally on the Day of Remembrance of the Deportation of the Crimean Tatars and carried Crimean Tatar national symbols, is due to take place in Sudak on May 25.

“Four Crimean Tatars are charged with an administrative offense for participating in an unauthorized rally. We have not seen the case file yet, but our lawyers will be sure to study it on May 25. It is not until after the trial that we will know the details. Because we only have the court record now, and very little information is available in it,” said Emil Kurbedinov.

On his Facebook page, Zair Smedlyaev posted a photo of some 50 people, who gathered at the entrance to Sudak’s City Court building expecting the verdict to be delivered.

It was reported earlier that police officers arrived at the homes of Crimean Tatars from the town of Sudak, who drove around the town with national flags on May 18, and ordered them to report to the police station for charging them with an administrative offense.

It was reported earlier that Russian police detained motorists travelling to the sites of commemoration of the 1944 Deportation on May 18.
