The police of the annexed Crimea performed searches at houses of the local public activists in Simferopol; the law enforcers checked Fazil Ibraimov’s house in the capital city of the Russian-occupied peninsula.
Crimean Solidarity, the human rights watching organization reported that a police van was spotted next to the house. Russia’s power-wielding agencies in Crimea have not yet commented on this search.
The local police have repeatedly searched houses of Crimean Tatars all over the peninsula. Specifically, last month, they detained several activists of the Crimean Tatar national movement under trumped-up charges with ‘extortion from a Turkish citizen’. Vedzhyje Kashka, one of the detained and the long-standing veteran of the movement died soon after being detained.
