According to Ilmi Umerov, Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars, the detainees were held for four hours.
"We are now in such circumstances in Crimea that we not even particularly interested in the cause of detention, because something is happening every day. This information has not been given enough publicity, and we are only now gathering information about what has happened. This is a normal alcohol-free cafe, there were not only the Crimean Tatars," Umer said in his televised interview to 112 Ukraine.
Umerov also says that he doesn't know whether there were activists and participants of the national movement among the detainees.
"It is not known whether there were any people involved in the national movement," said the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis.
It was reported earlier by QHA that armed masked men detained 35 Crimean Tatars at the local cafe in the village of Pionerske, Simferopol region.
The international observers register in Crimea numerous examples of human rights violations, lack of freedom of speech and expression, conducting surveillance and pressure on everyone who does not agree with the current occupation regime.
