The public prosecutor of "Hizb ut-Tahrir" case appealed the decision of the court in respect of Ruslan Zeytullaev, according to Krym.Realii. The prosecution demanded for Ruslan Zeytullaev imprisonment of 17 years, but a Russian court sentenced him to 7 years in prison.
"According to the prosecutor, Ruslan Zeytullaev is the organizer of "Hizb ut-Tahrir" cell and therefore should be convicted much more severely than the other three accused. The prosecutor asked the court to 17 years in prison of strict regime for Ruslan, but the court sentenced him to 7 years in prison. Now charges scheme looks unconvincing, there are perpetrators, the organization itself, but there no organizer, so the prosecutor filed an appeal", – Refat Sayfullaev, the father of another person involved in the case "Hizb ut-Tahrir" Ferati Sayfullaev, said
