It should be reminded that the political prisoner, the so-called first Hizb ut-Tahrir case defendant Ferat Sayfullaev, was detained illegally for more than five years. He was detained by Russian security forces in the occupied Crimea on April 2, 2015, and later transferred to Russia along with other individuals involved in the so-called case. He was accused of involvement in the activities of the Hizb ut-Tahrir organization, which was banned in the Russian Federation. The Russian court sentenced him to five years of a correctional penal colony. He served time in prison No. 17 in the Kirov region.
