In response to the decision by "Prosecutor of Crimea" to suspend the Mejlis’s activity, the Secretary General Thorbjorn Jagland made a statement:
“I strongly urge that no action is taken to restrict the Mejlis’s activity or to label it extremist. The Mejlis must be able to continue its activities in Crimea. The human rights mission I sent to the peninsula in January raised this issue and I immediately expressed my concern to Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov,” said Jagland.
He also noted that this situation is unacceptable.
“As our recently published human rights report makes clear, banning the Mejlis would discriminate against the whole Crimean Tartar community and is therefore unacceptable,” says a statement of the Secretary General of the Council of Europe.
It was reported earlier that Natalia Poklonskaya, the so-called Prosecutor General of Russian-occupied Crimea, decided to suspend the activities of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars.
