The Kyiv District Court of Simferopol upheld its previous decision on imposing a fine of 15 thousand rubles to the Crimean Tatar activist Tair Ibragimov.

He was found guilty of “violating the established procedure for organizing or holding a meeting, rally, demonstration, procession or picketing” (Part 5 of Article 20.2 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation), public association Crimean Solidarity reports.

During the open hearing, the defense stated that there was a number of violations during the arrest of their client.

In particular, the “police officer” did not present his official documents, and people in masks without identification marks used force against Ibragimov.

Tair Ibragimov was detained on March 28 during a rally in support of the children of political prisoners and activists of the “Crimean Solidarity”. The “guilt” of a 20-year-old young man was only that he participated in a flash mob in support of the Crimean Tatars and their family members arrested on the eve of the FSB, during which he was holding a sheet of A4 paper with the inscription: “Bring back fathers to the 166 children!” The next day, the Kiev district court of Simferopol decided to fine Ibrahimov, for which his defense filed an appeal.
