The ‘Central district court‘ of Simferopol in the occupied Crimea extended the detention period for Ali Asanov and Mustafa Degermenji. Thus, the detained Crimean Tatars will stay behind the bars until January 7, 2017.

Mavile Degermenji, Mustafa’s sister, posted this on her Facebook page. ‘They never let us in the court hall; they decided that the preliminary session should be held behind the closed doors’, she wrote.

She also reported that the next session with Asanov and Degermenji is slated for October 17.

The ‘case of February, 26’ is the infamous case of several Crimean Tatar activists detained by the Russian ‘authorities’ of Crimea in 2014; the protesters are suspected of ‘organization and participation in the mass disturbances in Crimea on February 26, 2014’, when the Crimean Tatars tried to prevent the occupation of the peninsula by Russian troops and the overthrowing of the Ukrainian authority there. Ali Asanov and Mustafa Degermenji were arrested in April and May 2014, respectively.
