Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Lyudmyla Denisova called on the Consul General of Ukraine in Rostov-on-Don Taras Malyshevsky and international human rights organizations to visit the courts in cases against Crimean Tatars, which will be held on October 1.

According to Ukrinform, Denisova wrote about this on Facebook.

“I call on the consul general of Ukraine in Rostov-on-Don Taras Malyshevsky and international human rights organizations to visit illegal courts to prevent violations of the rights of illegally detained citizens of Ukraine, as well as to promote the right to defense and a fair trial,” she wrote.

Denisova said that on October 1, the so-called “Supreme Court of Crimea” controlled by the Russian Federation will hold a court session on the so-called "Nariman Dzhelyalov case", during which it is expected to consider the appeal of the defense against the choice of a preventive measure in the form of detention.

Also, the so-called "District Court of Simferopol" controlled by the Russian Federation will hold a court hearing against Lenur Yakubov, who is charged with an administrative offense under Article 20.6.1 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation "failure to comply with the rules of conduct in an emergency or the threat of its occurrence".

In addition, the Southern District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don will hold a court session on the so-called "Hizb ut-Tahrir case" against members of the "Third Bakhchisarai group", during which the case is expected to be considered on its merits.

As reported, Nariman Dzhelyalov, who was illegally detained in the temporarily occupied Crimea, was reclassified from "complicity in sabotage" to "committing sabotage" on a gas pipeline in the village of Perevalne.

On September 3 and 4, security forces conducted illegal searches in the temporarily occupied Crimea and detained Nariman Dzhelyalov, First Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People, as well as activists Eldar Odamanov, Aziz and Asan Akhtemov, and Shevket Useinov.

On September 6, the Simferopol District "Court" arrested Dzhelyalov and the Akhtemov brothers until November 4. Odamanov and Useinov received 14 and 15 days of "administrative arrest", after which they were released.

On September 10, the Verkhovna Rada adopted a statement calling on the international community to condemn the next wave of repression against Crimean Tatars in the temporarily occupied Crimea.
