The mother of the defendant in the second Bakhchysarai “Hizb ut-Tahrir case” Timur Ibrahimov, was allowed to meet with him for the first time in two years. She said that on the day of her arrival in the Rostov pre-trial detention center, all vital medicines were taken away from him and have yet to be returned. This was reported by the “Crimean solidarity” organization.
Niyara Ibrahimova noted that after one of the court hearings she remained in Rostov to see him for the first time in 2 years. While she was waiting for a meeting, she remembered his letter, in which he talks about what has happened to him and what he had to endure.
“They were put into a solitary confinement at 7 am, where they stayed until 4 pm. From there, being searched, they were taken to the prison truck, with very small cells. My son weighs 140 kilos, and he is almost 190 cm tall, he couldn’t sit and he stood the entire way. It was a very difficult journey to Krasnodar, where he was put for three days into a punishment cell with huge rats. After that, he was transferred to a special unit in which he stayed for 7 days with a man who had obvious signs of schizophrenia, who once tried to commit an arson, in the result of which Timur nearly suffocated. After that, he was put into an empty "cage", like an animal cage, with no food, no water, no toilet, no bench. He spent 12 hours there, and then was transported to Rostov,” the report said.
His mother said that on the day of her arrival in the Rostov pre-trial detention center, all his vital medicines were taken from his and are still yet to be returned. Timur Ibrahimov emphasized that "he did not go through a medical examination because he ostensibly signed a refusal, which, was obviously not true”.
Previously, on 11 October 2017, in Bakhchysarai, occupants held mass searches in six Crimean Tatar houses, Marlen Asanov, Seyran Saliiev, Timur Ibrahimov, Memet Belyalov, Ernest Ametov, Server Zakiryaev. All were detained and charged with the article 205.5 Criminal Code of RF “participation in an organization that is recognized as terrorist by Russia legislature”.
On 21 May 2018, in the occupied Crimea, Russian security forces conducted mass searches in the houses of “Crimean Solidarity” activists, whereby two Crimean Tatars, Server Mustafayev and Edem Smailov, were detained. They are also charged with participation in “Hizb-ut-Tahrir” that is illegal in Russia.
On December 14, 2018, Server Mustafayev was sent to a psychiatric hospital “for examination”. Mustafayev himself called his placement in a psychiatric hospital a "punitive psychiatry."
In February 2019, Mustafayev was accused of spreading, studying and propagating extremist ideology.
On 12 September 2019, eight defendants, Marlen Asanov, Seyran Saliiev, Timur Ibrahimov, Memet Belyalov, Ernest Ametov, Server Zakiryaev, Server Mustafayev, and Edem Smailov, were transeferred from Crimea to Rostov-on-Don.
