April 19, 2022

On Tuesday, April 19, the occupants sentenced Emil Ziyadynov, a defendant in the latest so-called Hizb ut-Tahrir case, to 17 years in jail with the first 4 years in prison, the rest of the term in a strict regime colony with a probation for 1 year 6 months.

It should be noted that the accusations in this so-called case are based on the testimony of hidden witnesses and the conclusion of so-called experts actively cooperating with the Russian security forces. Consideration of the so-called case took place with a gross violation of international law.

The Crimean Tatar Resource Center strongly condemns that this decision which is illegal, politically motivated and criminal. Such a policy of the Russian Federation is a demonstration of the fight against the political beliefs of people in the occupied Crimea.

The Crimean Tatar Resource Center demands the cancelation of the sentence to the person involved in the so-called case and the immediate release of all other political prisoners.
