Crimean Prosecutor Natalia Poklonskaya has warned deputy head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Ahtem Chiygoz about arranging mass events in Crimea.
The incident comes ahead of the Human Rights Days, marked Dec 10.
Chiygoz was on his way home to Crimea from Kyiv Dec 6, when he was detained for 2 hours at Crimean-Ukrainian checkpoint. Crimean Prosecutor Natalia Poklonskaya gave Chiygoz a warning about inadmissibility of conducting mass events in Crimea.
Ahtem Chiygoz, in his turn, pointed out that since Crimea’s joining Russia, the authorities always reject Mejlis’s appeals to conduct mass events in Crimea. Poklonskaya proposed to discuss the issue at a special meeting of heads of security agencies of Crimea with a participation of the Mejlis.
To recall, Simferopol city administration has denied Mejlis’s appeal to conduct traditional mass events in Simferopol on the Human Rights Day, which Mejlis used to arrange for years, before Crimea’s annexation Russia.
Earlier, the authorities has banned Mejlis from conducting annual May 18 mourning meeting, dedicated to 70th anniversary of Crimean Tatar deportation.
