The National Police of Ukraine has launched a criminal investigation into recent illegal searches conducted by Russian law enforcement agencies in the houses of three Crimean Tatars Ernest Aliyev, Osman Osmanov, and Server Bariyev in the urban-type settlement of Rozdolne in Russia-occupied Crimea.
“This morning, Russian law enforcement agencies in the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea conducted illegal searches in the settlement of Rozdolne in the houses of three Crimean Tatars: Ernest Aliyev, Osman Osmanov and Server Bariyev. In fact, Russian authorities have been looking for prohibited items and literature in the private houses of the Crimean Tatars and inspecting their computers. Server Beriyev has been read out a ruling that members of Hizb ut-Tahrir organization, which is banned in the Russian Federation, come to meet in his house,” the main department of the National Police in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the City of Sevastopol wrote on Facebook on Jan. 11.
Based on these facts, the police opened criminal proceedings on the grounds of a crime described in Part 2 of Article 162 (violation of the inviolability of the home) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, which is punished by imprisonment of up to 5 years.
