Russian lawyer Mark Feygin challenged the ban of Russia’s FSB for Mustafa Jemilev to enter the occupied Crimea. Nikolai Polozov, Feygin’s colleague and another member of the defense team in Nadia Savchenko’s case, tweeted this on Wednesday.
“Today, my colleague Mark Feygin sent to court his statement on the illegal ban of the FSB for Mustafa Jemilev to enter Crimea”, he wrote.
Mustafa Jemilev, former Soviet dissident and ex-leader of the Crimean Tatar people, has been serving as Presidential Envoy on Rights of Crimean Tatars since spring 2014. In April 2014, the Federal Security Service forbade Jemilev to enter Crimea until 2019. Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry protested against the decision. In January 2016, the court of Simferopol, Crimea, arrested the leader of Crimean Tatars in absentia.
