In connection with searches and detentions of journalists in the annexed Crimea, the Ukrainian Ministry of Information Policy is to prepare an appeal to the OSCE, Emine Dzheppar, Adviser to the Minister of Information Policy, posted on her Facebook page.
“The Ukrainian Ministry of Information Policy is preparing an appeal to the Ukrainian law enforcement authorities, international organizations, including the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Dunya Mijatovic, with regard to the searches and detentions of journalists,” she wrote.
The Adviser to the Minister also said that a Crimean source has confirmed the information on 7 searches, including three searches in the homes of journalists Linyara Abibulayeva, Ruslan Lyumanov and Nikolai Semena.
Today, April 19, the operatives on the orders of the Crimean Prosecutor's Office searched the house of Nikolai Semena, a Crimean Tatar. Then he was taken in for questioning, presumably to FSB (Russia's Federal Security Service) in Simferopol.
In addition, Russian law enforcement officers are carrying out searches of the Crimean journalists at seven locations in Simferopol, Sevastopol and Yalta in the framework of the case against Nikolai Semena.
