Today, on December 4, at 9:00 (in Kyiv time), an off-site meeting of the Rostov District Military Court in the Emir-Usein Kuku case began at the premises of the Crimean Garrison Court.

The "court" is considering the issue of changing the preventive measure for a human rights activist.

According to reports in social networks, spouse of Kuku, Meriem, was allowed to enter the courthouse.

The public association "Crimean Solidarity" has published photos from the scene of events.


The public association also shared a video interview with one of the activists who came to support the political prisoner.

December 4, the human rights organization Amnesty International launched an online campaign for the liberation of the Crimean Tatar human rights activist Emir-Usein Kuku. In order to join the campaign, Amnesty International calls for the publication of a call to release Emir-Usein Kuku with the #FreeKuku hashtag on the personal page or social networking groups on Facebook.

Earlier, Amnesty International showed a video on the fate of the Crimean Tartar, Human Rights Defender Emir-Usein Kuku, who was illegally detained in a Russian prison.

Reference: The third defendant in the so-called Yalta case of "Hizb ut-Tahrir" Emir-Usein Kuku was charged by the occupation power under article 278 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation ("Forcible seizure of power or forcible restraint of power").

Earlier, during a video broadcasting from the "court" human rights activist Emir-Usein Kuku told that in the remand centre of Simferopol, Russian security forces systematically violate the rights of prisoners, which is observed in disregard for the religious traditions of Muslims and surveillance. The prison staff do not even provide medical assistance to the prisoners, which results in their death.
