They checked the documents. Five passports of Crimean Tatars were not returned and they were asked to pass the questioning.

The questions concerned the involvement in the terrorist activity and what particular Ismaili sect they profess. Activists Sabri Selyametov, Osman Hoshchu, Zekiy Kulametov, Rustem Kurchi and correspondent of Grani.ru Seidamet Mustafayev refused to testify.

As we reported, the Supreme Court of Russia changed the sentence for the persons of interest in Hizb ut-Tahrir case during the consideration of the appeal on December 24. The terms of imprisonment were decreased for six months.
