The day before, the court in Simferopol extended the arrest until September 11 to Aider Saledinov, accused in the same case.

Aidera Saledinova, Uzeyir Abdullayev, Rustem Ismailov and Emil Dzhemadenov are accused of involvement in the activities of the terrorist organization Hizb ut-Tahrir (p. 2 art. 205.5 CC), Teymur Abdullaev – in the organization of the cell (p. 1 art. 205.5 CC). This is the fourth case against the alleged members of Hizb ut-Tahrir, which was engaged on the territory of Crimea.
All five defendants were detained and arrested in November 2016 after a series of searches in the homes of Crimean Tatars. In December of the same year, Saledinov, Ismailov and Uzeir Abdullayev stated that they were beaten by FSB agents while transporting them to the investigative activities.
“Hizb ut-Tahrir” is recognized in the territory of Russia as a terrorist organization. In different regions of the country, terrorism cases have been opened, while members of the organization are accused and sentenced to various terms in the strict regime colony only on the grounds that they met in apartments, read religious literature, and recruited new participants.

According to some experts, Hizb ut-Tahrir is recognized as a terrorist organization illegitimately, as its participants in Russia did not prepare or carry out terrorist acts.
