“Prosecutor’s Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, according to the request of the Minister of temporarily occupied territories and IDPs Ukraine, added the information on occupant officials committing a number of abusive crimes against citizen of Ukraine Renat Paralamov to a Single Register of Pre-trial Investigations,” the statement says.

As it was reported earlier, the house of Crimean Tatar Renat Paralamov had been searched, and masked individuals without credentials took him away in an unknown direction. Later on lawyer Emil Kuberdinov said Paralamov was violently tortured and was in serious condition.
