Smail Mustafayev, a Crimean Tatar detained by Russian security forces in Bakhchysarai district on June 5, was released on bail, Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Nariman Jelal said in his interview with Hromadske.
He also gave details of the detainment. According to Jelal, some 30 security officials raided the house of the Crimean Tatar.
“They started to search the house and awakened the family with children. They were rude: they did not put handcuffs on, but gave the conflicting commands - sit, lie down,” Jelal said.
According to him, Mustafayev was asked about involvement with the banned in Russia "Hizb ut-Tahrir" organization, and the security officers also search for banned religious literature in his house.
The First Deputy Head of the Mejlis also said that the reason for the search and detention was quite strange: when Mustafayev worked as a forester, there was allegedly illegally felled wood on his plot of land. But this case was closed back in 2012.
Jelal said that security forces conducted searches exclusively to cause tension and intimidate the Crimean Tatars.
Just a reminder: On 5 June, in the village of Krasnyi Mak of Bakhchisaray district, the security officials detained the Crimean Tatar Smail Mustafayev, the father of three children, and taken him to the Northern branch of Sevastopol police on suspicion of illegal deforestation.
