On Friday, September 9, the Southern District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don announced the verdict to Yashar Shykhametov, a defendant in the so-called Hizb ut-Tahrir case.
The occupiers sentenced Yashar Shykhametov to 11 years in a strict regime colony with the first 4 years in prison.
The Crimean Tatar Resource Center strongly protests and states that this decision 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 to cancel the sentence of the defendant in the case and that to release other political prisoners immediately.
