06.04.2023, 15:17

In Crimea, the occupiers took unlawfully convicted citizen journalist Amet Suleimanov, who was under house arrest due to a heart condition, into custody and transferred him to an isolation center.

First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Emine Ceppar, reported this on Twitter, writes Ukrinform.

"Citizen journalist, Crimean Tatar Amet Suleimanov who was under house arrest due to his heart condition,has been taken into custody & transferred to isolation center. He was sentenced to 12 years in prison under politically motivated charges. Russia is the main abuser of human rights in the world," Ceppar wrote.

As reported by the President's Representative Office in the ARC, Amet Suleimanov is waiting in line for a heart valve implantation. He suffers from arterial and mitral insufficiency. This condition is included in the government's list of diseases that prevent detention.

On October 29, 2021, the Southern District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don announced they found citizen journalist Amet Suleimanov guilty. He was sentenced to 12 years of imprisonment under Art. 205.5 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (participation in the activities of a terrorist organization) due to alleged involvement in the Islamic organization Hizb ut-Tahrir, according to the FSB of the Russian Federation.

Suleimanov was detained in March 2021 during mass searches of Crimean Tatar homes in Crimea.
