Almost four thousand cases of property rights violations of individuals and legal entities have been recorded in the occupied Crimea since 2014. This was announced by the Regional Center for Human Rights' expert Roman Martynovsky, as Crimea.Realities reports.

“We carried out monitoring in the judicial sphere. This allowed us to identify 3984 victims of property rights violations in Crimea. These are only those victims whom we could identify. We are talking mainly about individuals and a small number of legal entities. Of this number, 3728 victims lost their plots, and 256 lost their real estate due to damage or demolition by the occupation authorities," Martynovsky said.

According to Martynovsky, the majority of property rights violations occur in Sevastopol, and the largest number of decisions on property expropriation took place in 2017.

"The residents of Sevastopol suffered the most from this. The total number of victims is 95.2% of the 3984 mentioned above. Most of the violations were committed during 2017, when the occupation courts adopted more than 70% of decisions in all 2014-2019 cases," Martynovsky specified.

As it was reported earlier on July 22, Russian law enforcers hold searches at the house of Crimean Tatars in the annexed Crimea.
