In Crimea, house of activist and blogger was searched

08.09.2014, 14:45

On September 8, in Crimea the house of a local activist and blogger Yelizaveta Bohutska was searched. Bohutska reported this herself to Krym.Realii. She did not say what agency is conducting the search and on what grounds. 

Bohutska has been writing both in social networks and media outlets, including the website Krym.Realii, critical materials against the annexation of Crimea and in protection of Crimeans that did not support the annexation.

Later, Bohutska was taken to a rayon police station in Simferopol. This was reported by journalist Shevket Namatullayev on his Facebook page and reposted by the Center of Journalist Investigations.

According to Namatullayev, during the search the police officers seized  Bohutska’s laptops, desk top computers, memory sticks, and the dashcam from Bohutska’s car.

 Bohutska’s husband informed that the police officers were looking for firearms, illegal drugs, and Mulsim religious literature. Bohutska was accused of meeting Mustafa Dzhemilev in Armiansk on May 3.

 On that day, Mustafa Dzhemilev was forbidden to enter Crimea, so Crimean Tatars went to Armiansk to meet him.
