According to lawyer Edem Semedlyaev, the meeting was held behind closed doors, since the "court" had decided there was a threat to the participants in the process, NGO Crimean Solidarity reported on Facebook.

The "court" selected a preventive measure for the Crimean Tatars in the form of detention until April 13.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Russia's FSB Federal Security Service on February 14 detained another three Crimean Tatars after raids on their houses.
