On Monday, the court of the annexed Crimea will consider 72 cases of Crimean Tatars, detained over the last month in the occupied peninsula. Iryna Gerashchenko, first deputy speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament, posted this on Facebook. 'Today, the court will be looking into the cases of our brothers, the Crimean Tatars,' she wrote.  

According to Krym.Realii, almost all hearings concern the Crimean Tatars who were detained after single protests against searches and arrests of their fellows in Simferopol and other towns across the peninsula. Their protests were considered ‘uncoordinated with the local government’.
