SIMFEROPOL / AQMESCIT (QHA) -

November 8, the security forces in the occupied Crimea arranged a visiting round to the houses of participants in single pickets, which took place on October 14, the activists from the Crimea reported.

According to preliminary data, "law enforcers" again interrogated picket participants and collected their passport data.

The security forces claim that criminal proceedings were initiated on the fact of picketing, in which they conduct repeated interrogations.

Human rights defenders urge participants not to give any personal data, referring to Art. 51 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation.

Earlier, QHA reported that "police" in the occupied Crimea began to summon activists for interrogations in connection with pickets of October 14 against reprisals by Russian security forces against the Crimean Tatars.

Previously, on October 14 in Crimea, a minimum of 34 people were detained for taking part in single pickets. More than 100 people 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 were held in Simferopol, Dzhankoy, Gvardeysk, Belogorsk and other cities of the occupied peninsula.

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.
