Political prisoner Vadym Bektymyrov left under arrest

October 7, 2020

The so-called Supreme Court of Crimea rejected the appeal of the defense against the extension of the preventive measure for the defendant in the latest so-called Hizb ut-Tahrir case Vadym Bektymyrov. He will remain in custody until December 2, 2020.

We remind that on July 7, Russian security forces conducted mass searches in the dwellings of the Crimean Tatars in the Bakhchisaray, Krasnohvardiiske and Simferopol districts of the occupied Crimea. Seven people were detained. All were taken to the FSB headquarters in Simferopol. On July 7, the so-called Kyiv District Court of Simferopol sent Oleksandr Syzykov, a disabled individual of the first group, under house arrest. On July 8, the so-called Kyiv District Court of the occupied Crimea chose a measure of restraint for Ismet Ibrahimov, Zekirya Muratov, Vadym Bektemyrov, Emil Ziyadynov, Alim Sufyanov and Seyran Khayretdynov in the form of detention.
