BAKHCHISARAY (QHA) -

Every day hundreds of people from all across Crimea come to support parents of a missing Crimean Tatar Erwin Ibragimov who is a member of the Crimean Tatars World Congress and the Bakhchisaray Regional Mejlis, Ilmi Umerov, Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People, reported on Facebook.

- Every day starts with a question, "Are there any news about Erwin Ibragimov?" But there is no answer... People from all across Crimea are constantly coming to support his parents. Every evening hundreds of people hoping to hear good news gather near the house of Erwin’s family. In this context, my own criminal proceedings (the threat to Russia's territorial integrity) seem a trifle –bit by bit the materials are being rigged up to be transferred to the court, wrote Umerov.

A 30-year-old Erwin Ibragimov, a member of the Crimean Tatars World Congress and Bakhchisaray Regional Mejlis, was kidnapped on May, 24 at about 11.00 p.m. in the city of Bakhchisarai.

Later a video was put on the Internet captured by a surveillance camera of one of the stores owned by a Crimean Tatar businessman in Bakhchisarai. The video record shows how a few unidentified persons, presumably in the uniform of the Russian traffic police, were forcibly putting Erwin Ibragimov in a minibus.

As QHA reported earlier, Erwin Ibragimov’s relatives are ready to pay a large sum for his return home, in particular a reward of one million Russian rubles, reported Argumenty Nedeli - Crimea.

A local resident found the documents, in particular a passport, driving license and a work book of the kidnapped Crimean Tatar Erwin Ibragimov in the city of Bakhchisarai. The finder immediately took the documents to the police station.
