According to the news agency Kryminform, Chairman of Russia Muftis Council and the acting Head of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov met to discuss the legal validity of searches in the houses of local Crimean Tatar Muslims.

Aksyonov promised to look into each particular case, asking the journalists to provide him with all available information on questionable activities of law enforcing authorities involving Crimean Tatars.

"We will let neither our law enforcing authorities nor any other categories of our civil servants to cross moral and ethic borders, including investigative actions", said Aksyonov. "I, for my part and on behalf of Crimean authorities, promise to do everything to not let such things happen again in the future".

Aksyonov also added that the republican authorities reached understanding with the Crimean Muftiate, and all further activities of this kind will be coordinated. "We've agreed on constant cooperation", he said. "There's no danger for Muslims in Crimea".

Mufti sheikh Ravil Gaynutdin, in his turn, expressed his confidence that anyone who committed legal wrongs against Crimean Tatars will face proper punishment. "I am sure that the errors will be corrected and those who committed this misconduct will present their apologies to the Spiritual Administration and those who became subject to such treatment."

The news about investigative activities in the houses of some members of Crimean Tatar community appeared in online media and social networks. Police had not officially commented on these cases before.
