"Identification of the group of suspected is taking place during the investigative actions by a secret witness. The court proceedings were already held for a few persons about arrest extension in Crimea. When the investigative experiment is completed, the suspected will be transferred back to Rostov-on-Don," the message reads.
According to the independent human rights media project OVD-Info, the secret witness is a suitable forensic tool. In this way, they can hide operatives introduced to investigations or construct missing pieces in criminal cases.
As we reported earlier, released political prisoner Crimean Tatar Edem Bekirov had heart surgery.
According to his daughter Eleonora, the surgery lasted five hours.
“Nine months in the captivity in the remand center has taken its toll on him. It concerns not only health but also the psychological state. The psychologist will work with him; I hope he will help him to recover mentally,” Eleonora Bekirova noted.
