(QHA) -

20 officers of justice who September 18 entered the building of Crimea fund, where the Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people is located, made a decision to fine the Fund at 50,000 rubles for the failure to leave the building within 24 hours.

It comes a day after the Mejlis, -- representative body of the Crimean Tatar People -- has been given 24 hours to ‘vacate’ its headquarters in Simferopol.

The move came after the major operation on Tuesday during which armed men blocked access to the Mejlis building, while the FSB spent 12 hours searching the building.

Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev called the incident “a robbery raid”.

Head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar leader Refat Chubarov, commenting the incident, said Mejlis is unable to counteract Crimean authorities, and would leave the building.

It should be noted, both Jemilev and Chubarov were banned entry Crimea for 5 years over “extremist activities”.
