Officer of Crimean prosecutor’s office has warned to first deputy head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Nariman Dzhelal about possible arranging or participating in an “unsanctioned rally” dedicated to the current situation of Crimean Tatar ATR channel.
“A pretty officer of the prosecutor’s office, accompanied with a officer of the Center to Fight Extremism have visited me to read out a warning about possible arranging or organizing unsanctioned rallies dedicated to the possible closure of ATR channel”- he wrote in Facebook.
Roskomnadzor, the body responsible for supervising’– and restricting – the media and information technology in Russia has refused to re-register ATR—Crimean Tatar only channel in the world.
ATR channel is currently broadcasting with a running countdown clock ticking down the seconds until the station's license expires.
Under Russian law, ATR must be registered by April 1 or will be forced off air. The Russian authorities have already sent ATR's paperwork back four times for corrections or additions.
The Roskomnadzor has also refused to renew the license of Crimean News Agency.
