On Wednesday, December 21, activists involved in the Hizb ut-Tahrir case Enver Krosh, Renat Aliiev, Edem Bekirov and Vilen Temerianov were arrested for 3 months. It is reported by the Crimean Solidarity.

The public prosecutor at the hearing demanded an extension of the arrest until April 10, 2023 due to possible attempts to hide and threats to witnesses by the defendants. The defense insisted on applying the Fourth Geneva Convention to the defendants as citizens of Ukraine, and influence on witnesses is impossible, since they are classified by the FSB. For unknown reasons, the hearing was held behind closed doors, that is, without the participation of the media.

We remind you that in the early morning of August 11, mass searches of Crimean Tatar activists took place in the Dzhankoi region of the occupied Crimea. Six men — Vilen Temerianov, Enver Krosh, Seitiia Abbozov, Murat Mustafaiev, Edem Bekirov and Rinat Aliiev — were detained by security forces on charges of participating in Hizb ut-Tahrir.
