Crimean Tatars Seiran Murtaazayev and Enver Tasinov, who approached Marlen Mustafayev’s house during the search, were sentenced to 5 days of administrative detention by the court. The court found them guilty of violation of Article 20.2 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation [breaking the established order of organization or conducting a convention, a meeting, a demonstration, a rally or a picket].
Part 2 of the said Article prescribes punishment in the form of a fine, compulsory public works or arrest for the term of up to 10 days.
Previously, the Kyiv district court of Simferopol found Marlen Mustafayev guilty of breaking Part 1 of Article 20.3 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation and sentenced him to 11 days of administrative detention. The reason for Mustafayev’s detention was the publication in the vk.com social network, which he made back in July 2014. He posted the image of the Hizb ut-Tahrir symbols.
