Imprisoned victims of Russia’s occupation were not fotgotten during the remembrance events marking the 72nd anniversary of the Deportation of the Crimean Tatar people

The trial has begun of four Crimean Muslims accused by Russia of involvement in an organization – Hizb ut-Tahrir - which is legal in Ukraine but which Russia and Uzbekistan have declared ‘terrorist’ without providing any reason. The ‘court’ on Wednesday also saw no need for the defence to be shown any proof.

The timing for the preliminary hearing could not have been more telling. The occupation authorities had taken all measures, from threats to a ban on all remembrance gatherings, to prevent Crimean Tatars from attending remembrance gatherings in honour of the victims of the 1944 Deportation. Aside from official flower-laying, it was ‘business as usual’, with the business including a court hearing with the now standard extension of all defendants’ detention until October, and rejection of every application lodged by the defence.

It is not clear why the preliminary hearing was in Simferopol since the four defendants: Ruslan Zeitullayev; Rustem Vaitov; Nuri Primov and Ferat Saifullayev, are already in Rostov where the trial will continue on June 1. Although there was a video link with the men, the entire exercise bore all the hallmarks of a formality, and the prosecutor apparently did not even bother to attend.

Emil Kurbedinov, who was unlawfully prevented from representing three of the four men reported that all applications had been rejected, including the request to be shown the evidence which the lawyers clearly need to defend their clients.

If there is any proof

There is no evidence at all against any of the four defendants of any ‘terrorist’ activities................
