Yesterday, on the 31th birthday of the kidnapped in May 2016 Ervin Ibragimov, a member of the Coordination Council of the World Congress of Crimean Tatars and Bakhchysarai regional Mejlis,  Crimean Muslims held a prayer (Dua).

About four hundred people gathered near the house of Ervin Ibragimov, where he lived with his parents.

July 17 is also a birthday of his father Umer Ibragimov and mother - Liliya Aliyeva.

The prayer service was held under the supervision of "law enforcement officers."

It was reported earlier that Ervin Ibragimov, 30, a member of the Coordination Council of the World Congress of Crimean Tatars, was kidnapped in Bakhchysarai at around 11 p.m. on May 24.

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 Bakhchysarai. The video record shows how a few unidentified persons, presumably in the uniform of the Russian traffic police, were forcibly putting Ervin Ibragimov in a minibus. 

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

On June 2, a local resident found the documents (passport, driving license and work book) of the kidnapped Crimean Tatar Ervin Ibragimov in the city of Bakhchysarai. The finder immediately took the documents to the police station.

The video, published online June 3, shows a car with persons unknown wearing traffic police uniform driven out from the water storage in a few minutes before the appearance of Ervin Ibragimov's vehicle. Then they stopped his car, searched it and taken him to a Ford Transit van of white color. The young man tried to escape, but two persons forced him into a car and driven away in an unknown direction.

Every day, people from throughout Crimea come to house of the missing Ervin Ibragimov to support his parents.
