Crimean Tatar Rustem Osmanov was fined $170 today in occupied Crimea under the accusation of participating in an unsanctioned meeting, as the Crimean Solidarity wrote on Facebook.

According to the administrative case filed against Osmanov, he and other activists were blocking the way of cars and other pedestrians during the searches at the house of another activist, Seydamet Mustafaev, Krym.Realii informs.

“De-facto, his guilt wasn’t proven. In the administrative case, there are reports by police officers and witnesses that were present in other administrative cases. The person was basically accused of something they didn’t do, but the court found him guilty,” lawyer Rustem Kiamilev says.

The defence intends to appeal against the decision both in Crimea and in the European Court of Human Rights.

As it was reported earlier, the occupation authorities in the annexed Crimea detained Crimean Tatar Rustem Osmanov this morning.
