Within the period on August 16 – November 15, 44 cases of human rights violations were recorded in annexed Crimea, as Fiona Frazer, the Head of UN Monitoring Mission, said during the presentation of the 24th report, 112.ua reported.
“As an occupation state, Russia continue violating its obligations in occupied Crimea. We have recorded 44 human rights violations during the reported period in Crimea,” Frazer said.
According to her, these violations include arbitrary use of legislation on countering extremism in Crimea, which suppresses dissidence, inspired fear and do not let people use freedom expression, freedom of association, peaceful assembly, and other human rights.
“Crimean Tatars are suffering from that a lot. There are five Crimean residents, all of them are Crimean Tatars, who were convicted on charges related to extremism, for possessing data or posting information which is considered extremist and terroristic,” Frazer stressed.
