On April 14, Russian court will held the session on the appeal of Mustafa Dzhemilev, Ukraine’s Presidential Envoy on Rights of Crimean Tatars and long-standing leader of the Crimean Tatar people (RIA Novosti). The politician is going to sue the FSB, Russia’s federal security service, for the ban to enter Russia-occupied Crimea.             

According to Jemilev’s lawyer Mark Feygin, “there’s no chance of winning the case against the FSB, but in order to pass it to the European Court on Human Rights”. Feygin added that so far, no one so far has seen the paper that forbids Jemilev to enter Crimea”.  A FSB representative said that the level of confidentiality of that document is being specified at the moment.    

In 2014, Dzhemilev tried to enter the peninsula, but the pro-Russian government of Crimea said he is banned to do so until 2019. Later, Kyiv district court of Simferopol, Crimea’s capital city, arrested the politician in absentia. A case under three articles of Russian criminal code was brought.
