The political prisoner, the defendant in the “Hizb ut-Tahrir case”, Nuri Primov, during the court hearing on the establishment of administrative supervision after the end of the prison term, actively defended himself and filed a number of very important motions, because of which he was placed in a punishment cell. This was reported by “Crimean Solidarity” with reference to the lawyer Emil Kurbedinov.
It is noted that on November 18, 2019, a court session was held in the Sovetsky District Court of the Mari El Republic on the establishment of administrative supervision after the term of imprisonment in respect of Nuri Primov, the defendant in the Sevastopol “Hizb ut-Tahrir case”. Primov was issued administrative supervision for 8 years.
“In court, Nuri Primov actively defended himself and filed a number of very important petitions. He stated that he was a citizen of Ukraine, and Russian citizenship is a necessary condition for thousands of Crimeans, without which it is impossible to get medical care in Crimea or educate children at school. And he was forced to take it. He also said that due to his Ukrainian citizenship, the Fourth Geneva Convention applies to him. Of course, someone didn’t like it and in revenge, he was put in a punishment cell. According to their logic, he talked too much in court", noted his attorney.
Previously, on January 23, 2015, in Crimea, Russian security forces arrested Nuri (Yuriy) Primov, Rustem Vaitov and Ruslan Zeytullaev. They became the first defendants in the fabricated “Hizb ut-Tahrir case”. Everyone was charged with article 205.5 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation ("organization of the activities of a terrorist organization and participation in it"). In September 2016, the North Caucasian District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don sentenced Nuri Primov to five years in a general penal colony.
In December 2018, the Sovetsky District Court of the Mari El Republic in Russia refused parole of Nuri Primov, citing the negative characteristic that the colony No. 5, where he is serving his sentence, provided.
