Crimean prosecutors uncovered Mustafa Jemilev’s 1988 article called ‘Protest in the Woods’ and provided it as evidence of the Mejlis’s ‘extremist activities’, Zair Smedlyayev, Head of the Qurultai’s Central Election Committee, told QHA.
“Somebody from the Prosecutor’s Office advised them to dig up these documents… I won’t be surprised if they (the prosecution – QHA) uncover materials in museums dating back to the Crimean Khanate and use them as evidence,” Smedlyayev commented on Russian prosecutors’ farcical and nonsensical decision.
Written on May 26, 1988, ‘Protest in the Woods’ describes events that took place 18 kilometers from Simferopol. Back then, some 250 Crimean Tatars gathered for a protest at a 400-500 sq.m. clearing in the woods located 50 meters from the Simferopol-Kerch motorway. The protest, which went on for a number of days, was staged against flagrant discrimination and blatant violation of Crimean Tatars’ rights perpetrated for reason of their nationality.
It was reported earlier that judges of the so-called ‘Crimea’s Supreme Court’ ordered that a translator be brought to an April 25 hearing on a lawsuit seeking to ban the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars to translate the case’s materials from Ukrainian into Russian.
