In Bakhchisarai, occupying forces conducted an illegal search in the house of Mustafa Mustafayev, a delegate of the Kurultai of the Crimean Tatar people. According to the FSS, the search took place due to reports of alleged damage to the railway in Bakhchisaray district on February 23, 2023.
Mr. Mustafayev and his son Sabri were taken to the building of the occupying FSS. According to local activists, their neighbor, 33-year-old Shevket Ergashev, was also taken along with the Mustafayevs.
Earlier, on November 21, 2017, the FSS officers had already conducted an illegal search in Mustafa Mustafayev’s house.
Mr. Mustafa appeared in the occupation court in the case of the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ilmi Umerov as a defense witness and attended illegal trials of Crimean Tatars in the occupied Crimea.
We draw the attention of the law enforcement agencies of Ukraine to yet another violation of the rights and freedoms of a Ukrainian citizen. We call on the international community to condemn the actions of the Russian Federation and the occupying administrations of Crimea under its control and to continue political and diplomatic pressure on the aggressor country. Only deoccupation will put an end to the abuse of Ukrainian citizens and return peaceful and free life to the temporarily occupied Crimean Peninsula!
