On behalf of the state, the prosecutor was instructed to apologize to a resident of Nizhny Novgorod, who was unreasonably deprived of Russian citizenship.
Fifteen years ago, illegally, without any reason, Visam Al-Tbahi Mohamed Farhat was criminally prosecuted. Justice triumphed – the prosecutor’s office of the Nizhny Novgorod region notified Visam Al-Tbakhi Mohamed Farhat that the Sormovsky district prosecutor was instructed to apologize to him on behalf of the state for illegal and unjustified criminal prosecution in 2004, KozaPress reports .
A native of the Palestinian city of Hebron, since October 26, 2018, he has been in the temporary detention center of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Nizhniy Novgorod Region. The FSB Directorate initiated the deprivation of his Russian citizenship, so he was placed in a temporary detention center.
According to statements by security officials in the courts, Mr. Al-Tbahi cannot be a citizen of Russia on the grounds that he allegedly represents a threat to state security. The demands to present evidence that would confirm the charges, neither the court nor Mr. Al-Tbahi had received them. It was justified by the fact that they are classified.
Visam al-Tbahi Mohamed Farhat has been married to a resident of Nizhny Novgorod since 2001. They have eight children.
In 2004, he was unreasonably arrested after the well-known tragic events in Beslan. He was charged that he is a member of the Hizbut Tahrir Al-Islami organization, which is banned in the Russian Federation. Visam al-Tbahi spent 8 months in custody. Investigators sought that he admit his guilt, applied illegal methods of influence (beatings) to him.
The father of many children, despite the strong psychological and physical pressure, did not break and did not slander himself. Of course, that the investigators did not find any evidence against him, and he was released. Unaware that justice would prevail, Al-Tbahi decided that he would not seek recognition of the illegality of detention and payment of monetary compensation.
In 2013, Gayaz-Khazrat Zakirov, chairman of the Spiritual Board of Muslims of the Nizhny Novgorod Region (DUMNO), spread a statement in the media with false information. The statement claimed that Al-Tbahi was allegedly convicted for participating in the organization Hizbut Tahrir Al-Islami, and this after he was fully acquitted.
Despite the fact that Mr. Al-Tbahi had a chance to endure humiliation and remain in detention for a long time, he adequately withstood all the tests and ensured that the prosecutor apologized to him on behalf of the Russian Federation.
