October 21, 2022

Lenur Khalilov, a defendant in the so-called Alushta Hizb ut-Tahrir case, was transferred to the Vladimir Central prison to serve his sentence. It was reported by the Crimean Solidarity.

We remind that on June 10, Russian security forces carried out mass searches in the dwellings of the Crimean Tatars in Alushta, Bilohirsk and Simferopol. As a result, 8 people were detained on suspicion of involvement in the Hizb ut-Tahrir organization banned in the Russian Federation. On June 10 and 11, the so-called Kyiv District Court of Simferopol chose a preventive measure in the form of detention until August 5 for the Crimean Tatars detained after searches – Riza Omerov, Enver Omerov, Ayder Dzhepparov, Eskender Suleymanov, Ruslan Nagaev, Eldar Kanimirov, Ruslan Mesutov and Lenur Khalilov. Subsequently, the occupants have repeatedly extended the measure of restraint for political prisoners. On January 12, the Southern District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don announced the verdict of the defendants in the so-called Bilohirsk Hizb ut-Tahrir case. Enver Omerov was sentenced to 18 years, Ayder Dzhepparov to 17 years, Riza Omerov to 13 years in prison.
