SIMFEROPOL / AQMESCIT (QHA) -

In the occupied Crimea in the village of Kholmovka in the Bakhchysarai district, security officials searched the house of Crimean Tatar activist Nariman Memediminov, the human rights organization Crimean Solidarity reported on Facebook.

Law enforcement agencies" cordoned off not only the house of the activist, but the whole street.

The Crimean Solidarity noted that the security officials had already carried out a search in the house of the Crimean Tatar on February 11, 2016.

“Security officials and law enforcement officers came to the house of activist Nariman Memedinov. Residence address: Bakhchysarai district, 21, Kholmovka Str. Let us remind, that on February 11, 2016, his house was already searched, and then the Bakhchysarai District Court on July 13, 2017, was already considering an administrative case against Crimean Tatar activist Nariman Memediminov. According to lawyer Lily Gemeddzhi, the activist was prosecuted for allegedly participating in an unsanctioned rally on April 13, 2017 near the house of Seydamet Mustafayev, who was being searched at that time," reads the report.

Then the activist was fined 10 thousand rubles.

After the searches Nariman Memediminov was arrested. He was taken to Simferopol to the FSB department.

“According to his spouse, the search was carried out in a rude manner, the security officials used profanities,” the human rights activists note.
