Russian police officers checked the documents of the Crimean Tatars who came to the building of the Southern District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don to hear the verdict on the defendants in the so-called Hizb ut-Tahrir case. It is reported by Crimean Solidarity public association.
Dozens of listeners gathered at the announcement of the verdict to political prisoners Tymur Yalkabov and Lenur Seidametov, who were sentenced by the Southern District Military Court to 17 and 13 years in prison.
“The traffic police officers who arrived at the courthouse demanded documents for a car from the assembled listeners, it is known that they wanted to draw up an administrative protocol for one man due to the lack of an insurance policy for a car. The cars of the listeners who arrived to the verdict announcement were parked in the parking lot near the court building”,- the report said.
