“It was reported that the investigative events at Server Bariyev’s are over. One of the present men introduced himself as an official from the Internal Ministry. They have a household for two families, a search was carried out everywhere. They voiced the order, saying that members of Hizb ut-Tahrir organization banned in Russia gather here,” the message says.
Searches are over at Osman Osmanov’s and Ernest Aliyev’s homes. They were looking for “forbidden literature,” inspected office equipment. Nothing was found or seized.
The details are being defined. It remains unclear whether the search was conducted under the investigator’s order or court’s decision.
Hizb ut-Tahrir is an international, pan-Islamist political organization, which describes its ideology as Islam, and its aim as the re-establishment of the Islamic Caliphate to resume the Islamic way of life in the Muslim world. Hizb ut-Tahrir has been banned in Germany, Russia, China, Egypt, Turkey, and all Arab countries (except Lebanon, Yemen, and the UAE). In July 2017, the Indonesian government formally revoked Hizbut ut-Tahrir's charter, citing incompatibility with government regulations on extremism and national ideology.
