The defendant in the so-called Yalta Hizb ut-Tahrir case Muslim Aliev was again placed in a punishment cell in a Russian colony on the territory of the Republic of Bashkortostan. He will stay there until January 30, 2022. It is reported by the Crimean solidarity public association.

We remind you that Emir-Huseyn Kuku, Vadym Siruk, Muslim Aliev, Enver Bekirov, Arsen Dzhepparov and Refat Alimov are accused of participation in the organization Hizb ut-Tahrir, which is banned in the Russian Federation. They are charged with Article 205.5 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (organization of the activities of a terrorist organization and participation in it). Later they began to impute Article 278 of the Criminal Code (Forced seizure of power or forcible retention of power). On October 11, during a court session in the Southern District Military Court of Rostov-on-Don, the prosecutor requested 13 to 20 years in prison for the so-called Yalta Hizb ut-Tahrir case defendants. On November 12, the Southern District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don announced the sentence. Muslim Aliev and Enver Bekirov were sentenced to 19 and 18 years in a maximum security penal colony, Emir-Huseyn Kuku and Vadym Siruk - to 12 years, Refat Alimov - to 8 years, Arsen Dzhepparov - to 7 years.
