SIMFEROPOL / AQMESCIT (QHA) -

In the occupied Crimea, the "police" began to summon activists for interrogations in connection with the October 14 picket against reprisals by Russian security forces against the Crimean Tatars, the Crimean Tatar lawyer Emil Kurbedinov reported on his Facebook page.

“In the Crimea, in Nizhnegorsk, the police started interrogating activists, to find the organizers of single pickets on October 14,” the message said.

Earlier QHA reported that on October 14 in Crimea, a minimum of 34 people were detained for taking part in single pickets. More than 100 participated in the protests in the occupied peninsula.

All the arrests were carried out with violation of even the current Russian legislation.

Police was massively detaining activists who went on single pickets, protesting against the arbitrariness of Russian security forces against the Crimean Tatars.  People came out with pickets throughout the Crimea. Pickets are held in Simferopol, Dzhankoy, Gvardeysk, Belogorsk and other cities of the occupied peninsula.  

Previously, on October 11, occupants were massively conducting searches and detentions in the homes of Crimean Tatars in Bakhchysarai from the early morning.

Later, the Kremlin-controlled Simferopol court has chosen a measure of restraint for all six Crimean Tatars, who were searched on October 11. The activists were arrested for two months.

The lawyer of one of the detainees said that the arrests of the Crimean Tatars were caused by the fact that the latter refused to recognize the new order in the Crimea and the annexation of the peninsula by Russia.
