Crimean "Supreme Court" banned Mejlis of Crimean Tatars
Pro-Russian authorities of the occupied peninsula considered Mejlis "extremist organization"
The so-called "Supreme Court" of the Russian-occupied Crimea banned Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people and forbade any activities of this organization across the Russian Federation (15 Minutes).
The decision was announced on Tuesday by judicial panel chaired by judge Natalya Terentyeva; thus, the panel complied with the respective suit of Natalya Poklonskaya, so-called "Prosecutor of Crimea".
Earlier, the press service of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine reported that a criminal case on the ban of Mejlis by Prosecution of Crimea has been initiated. The Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine noted that the ban of Mejlis demonstrates violation of rights of Crimean Tatars people and all citizens, who oppose temporary occupation of the territory of Ukraine by the Russian Federation.
On April 18, Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation listed Mejlis of Crimean Tatars as extremist organization. On April 13, Prosecutor of Crimea Natalya Poklonskaya suspended Mejlis of Crimean Tatars.
