Four Crimean Tatars charged with participation in terrorist activities are to stand trial at the North Caucasus District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don (Russia), the lawyer Emile Kurbedinov posted on his Facebook-account.
“On May 18, 2016, four Muslim Crimean Tatars - Zeytullaev Ruslan, Vaitov Rustem, Primov Nuri and Sayfullaev Ferat - charged with terrorism are to stand trial at the North Caucasus District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don,” the lawyer reports.
At the end of the message, he wrote, "Is it just a coincidence?"
Just a reminder: May 18 is a Crimean Tatar Remembrance Day of Deportation (1944). Erfan Kudusov-Beshuyli, an entrepreneur and activist of the Crimean Tatar national movement, previously wrote that law enforcement agencies of Russia-annexed Crimea are taking measures against "terrorist attacks," being allegedly preparing by the Crimean Tatars in the central districts of Simferopol on Crimean Tatar Remembrance Day of Deportation.
Zeytullaev Ruslan was detained on January 23, 2015, on fabricated "Hizb ut-Tahrir case" and accused of committing a crime under Part 2 of Article 205.5 of the RF Criminal Code (participation in a terrorist organization prohibited in the Russian Federation).
So, they try to present Zeytullaev as an organizer and other activists as members of the international terrorist organization.
Sayfullaev Ferat, Vaitov Rustem and Primov Nuri were detained in this case and held in custody as well.
