Crimean Solidarity NGO says the so-called "Kyiv District Court" in the city of Simferopol in Russian-occupied Crimea has ruled that two Crimean Tatars, namely Alim Sufyanov and Seyran Khayretdinov, who were detained during the July 7 searches, will remand in custody until September 9.

"[The so-called] 'Kyiv District Court' has ruled to remand [the detainees] in custody until September 9, 2020," the NGO wrote on Facebook on July 9.

The hearings were held behind closed doors. However, over 100 people rallied outside the "court" building to support the Crimean Tatars.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Russian occupying authorities detained seven Crimean Tatars, namely Emil Ziyadinov, Ismet Ibragimov, Alim Sufyanov, Seyran Khayretdinov, Oleksandr Sizikov, Vadym Bektemirov, and Zekyrya Muratov, after searches in four districts of the occupied peninsula.

Dilyaver Memetov who was not at home during the search has been put on the wanted list.

The Crimean Tatars are suspected of involvement in the Hizb ut-Tahrir organization, which is banned in Russia.

On July 8, the "court" ruled to put Oleksandr Sizikov under house arrest until September 2.

The Main Directorate of the National Police in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea (ARC) and the city of Sevastopol has initiated criminal proceedings on the fact of conducting illegal searches under Part 2 of Article 162 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (violation of security of residence), and Part 2 of Article 146 (illegal confinement or abduction of a person).
