One-man protests in Crimea: Russian police detain at least three elderly activists

Russian police in Crimea have detained at least three elderly Crimean Tatars, who held one-man protests in support of earlier arrested 76-year-old Server Karametov.

Lawyer Emil Kurbedinov posted this on his Facebook page.

"In response to the arrest of 76-year-old Server Karametov, at least four more elderly people have held their own one-man protests in Simferopol today. The protests were held near the premises of the Parliament, the Council of Ministers, the Interior Ministry and the Supreme Court of Crimea. According to recent reports, two elderly people have already been detained," he wrote.

Other activists, including Elvina Semedliayeva, informs about detention of three activists.

As reported, August 8, Server Karametov held a one-man protest action near the Supreme Court of Crimea in Simferopol, expressing support for Mejlis deputy chairman Akhtem Chiygoz who now stands trial for participating in the rally in support of Ukraine's territorial integrity on February 26, 2014.

Two administrative protocols were drawn up against Karametov, particularly on violation of procedure for holding one-man protest action and on resistance to police officers.

August 9, the district court in Simferopol sentenced activist Server Karametov to ten days of administrative arrest for "resistance to police officers."
