SIMFEROPOL / AQMESCIT (QHA) -

The Kremlin-controlled Supreme Court of the occupied Crimea extended the arrest to Crimean Tatar activists Teymur Abdullayev, Uzeyir Abdullayev, Aider Saledinov, Rustem Ismailov and Emil Dzhemadenov who are contrived in the trumped-up "Hizb ut-Tahrir" case. This he public association Crimean Solidarity reported on the court decision on Facebok.

"The court left five Crimean Muslims in custody until April 11, 2018,” reads the message.

QHA reported that on February 9, in the Russian-occupied Crimea, the so-called Supreme Court held a meeting on the case of the "Simferopol Five." Hearing was held in closed session. The entrance is restricted only to the Crimean Tatars, Crimean Muslims, who came to the session in the so-called "Hizb ut-Tahrir case".

December 22, 2017 the "court" left the figurants of the so-called "Simferopol case" in custody until February 11, 2018.

Reference:  Teymur Abdullayev, Uzeir Abdullayev, Emil Dzhemadenov, Rustem Ismailov and Aider Saledinov who were arrested on October 12, 2016 in the "Simferopol case of Hizb ut-Tahrir" are charged under art. 205.1 and 205.5 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation in organizing and participating in the activities of Hizb ut-Tahrir, organization recognized as terrorist in the Russian Federation.

On February 8, the occupiers held a regular trial to extend the measure of restraint to the Bakhchysarai group in the case.
The meetings were held in closed session, according to reports of Crimean solidarity. Measure of restraint against Enver Mamutov, Rustem Abiltarov, Zavri Abseitov and Remzi Memetov was extended until April 17, 2018.

The so-called case of Hizb ut-Tahrir has become a “hallmark” of the Russian Federal Security Service struggle against dissident Muslims in the Crimea. Under the pretext of suspicions in terrorism, calling their repressive actions a fight against extremism, Russian security forces break into homes, carry out massive illegal searches and detentions.
