Simferopol court arrested a 76-year-old Crimean Tatar Server Karametov for 10 days for "resistance to police officers” in the occupied Crimea. The day before Karametov held a single demonstration in support of Ahtem Chiygoz with a poster: "Putin, our children are not terrorists." This was reported by the lawyer Nikolai Polozov in Facebook.

On Wednesday the court found guilty and fined for 167 dollars.

He was accused of “breaching the order of holding single demonstrations” and "resistance to police officers.”

Server Karametov was arrested in the annexed Crimea before. On the Day of Remembrance for the victims of Crimean Tatar genocide, on May 18, he was detained by Russian law enforcers after he came to the square in Simferopol with the Crimean Tatar flag and portraits of his parents who were victims of the 1944 deportation. After three hours, he was released after drawing up the administrative protocol.
