Mass detentions of activists and lawyers of Crimean Tatars under the "court" building in Crimea
This is reported by the Representative Office of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Ukrainska Pravda reports.
"On October 25, in Simferopol, Russian security forces illegally detained Crimean Tatar activists under the building of the occupation "Crimean Garrison Military Court" controlled by the Russian Federation and lawyers who provided them with protection.
The activists gathered to hear the lawyers who were supposed to take part in the consideration of the appeal against the verdict of the defendants in the Hizb ut-Tahrir case via videoconference.
Among the detainees: Crimean solidarity coordinator Dilyaver Memetov and Crimean solidarity correspondents Zidane Adzhikelamov, Ruslan Paralamov and Dlyaver Ibragimov."
It is noted that a protocol was drawn up against the lawyer of the Crimean Tatars Edem Semedlyaev under the Russian article "disobedience to the order of a police officer", which the Ukrainian Department defined as direct obstruction of professional advocacy and deprivation of the right to defend detainees.
