SIMFEROPOL / AQMESCIT (QHA) -

Crimean Tatar activist Marlen Mustafayev is suspected of making a publication in a social network that allegedly promotes banned symbols, journalist Anton Naumlyuuk informed on his Facebook page.

It is noted that Mustafayev violated article 20.3 of the Code of Administrative Violations of the Russian Federation (propaganda or public display of prohibited symbols).

According to Naumlyuuk, it is not known, whether it is the same post by Mustafayev of 2014 with the symbolism of Hizb ut-Tahrir, for which he had already been arrested and released, or not.

The journalist said that today, September 4, at 3 pm a trial was scheduled in the Kyiv district court in the case of Mustafayev.

Naumlyuuk also further noted that after the search, Mustafayev was taken to the "Directorate General of the MIA" in the Crimea. However, the lawyer Eden Semedlyaev was not allowed to him.

After applying for the "hotline", the application was accepted and is to be considered within 30 days.

Earlier QHA reported that in the village of Kamianka (Simferopol district) in the occupied Crimea, searches were carried out in the house of Crimean Tatar Marlen Mustafayev. According to preliminary data, the search was initiated by the FSB.

Previously, Marlen Mustafaev was released on March 4, 2017 after a 11-day arrest. Mustafayev noted that he was held accountable for the reposts in the social network, made before the occupation of the Crimea.
