Crimea’s “Supreme Court” upheld the detention of four Muslims arrested on February 11. They are Enver Bekirov, Vadim Siruk, Amir-Usein Kuku and Muslim Aliev.
As the lawyer Emile Kurbedinov reported, the Court considered the lawyers’ appeals to the Kiev District Court of Simferopol on the arrest of that Muslims accused by FSB in terrorism.
“Unfortunately, the “Supreme Court” of Crimea has not accepted the defence and has upheld the decision of the Court about the arrest,” said the lawyer.
Also, according to him, during the trial debates the suspects declared the FSB frivolous claims, trumped-up cases and inhuman conditions in the SIZO (remand prison). “It is about the food full of cockroaches, about bugs and fleas, further I quote, “which make all the bed linens covered with blood”, the lack of beds in crowded chambers (the detainees sleep in turn), etc.,” said Kurbedinov.
On February 11-12, 2016 there were searches in the homes of Muslims in Crimea. As a result 14 people were arrested, 10 of them were released after interrogation.
On February 12 the Court remaned in custody till April 8 all the four detainees: Amir-Usein Kuku, Enver Bekirov, Muslim Aliev and Vadim Siruk.
