On the morning of May 4, FSB officers searched the house of Tofik Abdulgaziyev in Simferopol (Novaya Str. 28), activist Anna Bogacheva reported on Facebook.
After the search, Tofik Abdulgaziev said that the security forces were looking for documents of a missing person in his house.
"I have nothing to do with this man. They found nothing. Computer and phones are not taken away. They behaved politely, put shoe covers on their feet and went into the house," the Crimean activist Remzi Bekirov said in a video commentary.
However, later the security officers returned and took Tofik Abdulgaziyev for interrogation.
"The offenders allegedly came to the wrong address, but later came back and Tofik Abdulgaziev was summoned for interrogation," Ahmad Rustem Oglu said.
