Posted in : real dating sites on by : Melillo
Russia has completed a wave that is new of queries and arrests in occupied Bakhchysarai, this time around targeting two sons of the well known Crimean Tatar historian and a television ATR presenter, now located in mainland Ukraine, who may have supplied protection of governmental repression under Russian career. This is an evident attack on civic activists and journalists involved in the human rights initiative Crimean Solidarity and attempt to terrorize other Crimean Tatars into leaving Crimea or falling silent about persecution and other rights violations as with all such ‘operations’ over the last few years.
Armed and frequently masked officers resulted in at seven houses in the beginning 11 March, performing a unlawful search also of a property which is not presently occupied. In typical breach of procedure, all of the solicitors whom arrived to express the males had been prevented from being current throughout the search. In one or more instance, ‘prohibited literature’ had been planted because of the FSB, that was an action they obviously didn’t desire attorneys recording.
This 1 of this aims for the occasions on 11 March had been terrorization is obvious through the gratuitous amount of queries and domiciles targeted. Crimean Solidarity coordinator Lutfiye Zudiyeva describes that a search ended up being carried from the home of Crimean Solidarity civic journalist Seydamet Mustafayev, although their title just isn’t contained in this‘case’ that is new. Not merely did the enforcement officers carry on because of the search although Mustafayev himself had not been in the home, nevertheless they took their father that is elderly Mustafayev away. They will have since released him.
The FSB had been similarly well mindful that ATR presenter Seytumer Seytumerov had kept Crimea after persecution in 2018 and they carried out the search regardless that they would only find his elderly mother at home, yet.
Four Crimean Tatars have now been arrested: the 2 sons of historian Shurki Seytumorv – Seytumer Seytumerov (also a historian) and their bro Osman Seytumerov, the two men’s uncle Rustem Seytmemetov and Amet Suleymanov http://www.brightbrides.net/review/bbpeoplemeet/. Relating to Zudiyeva, the FSB have actually, yet again, targeted activists that are civic their family members.
Suleymanov is just a Crimean Solidarity activist and journalist (streaming details about arrests and political studies onto the online). He has got recently restricted such activism that is civic but just as a result of extremely serious heart related illnesses. He is suffering from chronic rheumatic heart disease, aortic insufficiency, coronary artery disease along with other conditions. Most of these imply that Russia is putting their life at risk through the occasions on 11 March and, still more, his imprisonment into the intolerable conditions for the Simferopol SIZO remand prison.

Lawyer Edem Semedlyaev, who was simply prevented from attending the search of Seytumer Seytumerov, says that “as typical, the search had been for forbidden literature and technology”. ‘Search’ ought to be grasped really loosely because the FSB increasingly brings the literary works using them, after which, into the lack of attorneys, claims to have ‘found’ it. Suleymanov’s spouse reports, as an example, that the officers planted two brand new publications, specifically place in book covers, regarding the desk where kids do their schoolwork.
It is critical to stress that the FSB are actually only enthusiastic about written product or computer technology, and barely also imagine become trying to find tools or similar. This is certainly of major importance considering that the four guys arrested on 11 March face prison that is serious under Russia’s ‘terrorism legislation’.
The brothers, Seytumer and Osman Seytumerov, Rustem Seytmemetov and Amet Suleymanov are faced with participation in Hizb ut-Tahrir, a pan-islamist that is peaceful that will be legal in Ukraine & most other countries, and which just Russia has selected to call ‘terrorist’. No valid reason has ever been given to the extremely secretive ruling by Russia’s Supreme Court in 2003 to label Hizb ut-Tahrir ‘terrorist’, yet these charges under Article 205.5 § 2 of Russia’s unlawful rule carry a phrase of from 10 to two decades’ imprisonment.

ATR presenter Seytumer Seytumerov is, for the minute, the person that is only the FSB want to label the ‘organizer’ of the Hizb ut-Tahrir team (Article 205.5 § 1) with this specific possibly holding a life phrase. Seytumerov is luckily safely in mainland Ukraine, with this particular regrettably and therefore the FSB could you will need to pin ‘organizer’ charges on some other person as well – essentially with their documents, and also for the bonuses, and even promotions, that such Hizb ut-Tahrir prosecutions are recognized to bring them.
There isn’t any crime that is recognizable and none is necessary, because the FSB have actually their particular ‘experts’ happy to find ‘proof’ of involvement in Hizb ut-Tahrir in innocuous spiritual discussions. Additionally they plant ‘evidence’ in the shape of publications related to Hizb ut-Tahrir and employ very questionable ‘secret witnesses’ whose testimony can’t be confirmed. Since 2017, Russia was quite openly making use of such fake ‘terrorism’ studies against civic activists and reporters in occupied Crimea, additionally the arrests on 11 March bring to 70 the sheer number of guys either ‘convicted’ after fatally problematic studies on such costs, or dealing with huge sentences. Another seven children* have experienced their dads recinded in handcuffs. Most of the males have actually, or is going to be announced governmental prisoners by the Memorial Human Rights Centre. The latter has over and over over repeatedly remarked that Russia isn’t only breaching its very own legislation by imprisoning males for non-existent terrorism, it is additionally breaking worldwide legislation by illegally using its repressive legislation in occupied Crimea.
* Amet Suleymanov has three sons: Ibrahim (b. 16.07.2008); Mukhammad (18.10.2011) and Mansur (11.02.2016). Seytumer Seytumerov features a two-month old son, Suleyman (b. 14.01.2020), while Rustem Seytmemetov has three young ones – Said, who’s 12, Bakhiye (b. 02.10.2013) and Beyan (27.08.2017).
