Today, on May 11, the Russian force structures raided the place of Crimean Tatar activist Riza Izetov in the village of Strohanivka. The search lasted from 7 till 9 a.m. Upon the results of the search, the activist was detained and taken to the Center for counteraction to extremism (the «E-Center»). The QirimInfo correspondent reported this.
The activist’s lawyer Edem Semedlyayev followed his client to the «E-Center», but he was informed there that Izetov hadn’t arrived to the Center. The lawyer told about this in a video-appeal on Facebook.
«We practically followed them and saw him having been delivered exactly here. However, they told us he hadn’t been there. The officer-on-duty said he would look for him. So far, we have been standing here for 20 minutes, and they don’t let us in», – Semedlyayev told.
An hour later, Riza Izetov was freed from the building of the «E-Center». According to the activist, the cause for the detention was the criminal case against someone called Enver Memetov. According to the law-enforcement officials, Memetov left for Syria to fight for the terrorist organization IS.
Important to note, the force structures already searched the place of Tofik Abdulgaziyev on May 4 under the same reason. The Crimean Tatar was also delivered to the «E-Center» back then.
