Muslims of Crimea on Friday, March 20, prayed for Crimean Tatar activist Reshat Ametov, who was brutally killed after being kidnapped in the center of Simferopol a year ago.
The prayer started 12:30 (local time) and will lasted till the beginning of Friday prayer (13:00).
Crimean Tatar activist Reshat Ametov, 39-year-old father of three was kidnapped in Simferopol as he was conducting a lone rally against Crimean referendum and the region’s unification with Russia. He was found dead two weeks later.
Despite video footage showing his abduction from outside the Council of Ministers in Simferopol by men in uniforms, who are supposed to be members of Crimea’s self defense forces, the killers were not found.
The investigation of the murder, if such there ever was, has been postponed.
Meanwhile, Crimean Prime Minister Sergey Aksyonov has consistently denied that self defense forces had anything to do with Ametov’s abduction and murder.
