Refat Chubarov, Head of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars, commented on the intention of the Prosecutor's Office of Crimea to ban the activities of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars.
“Mejlis as the representative body of Crimean Tatars elected by Kurultay of the Crimean Tatar people has conformed fully with norms of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples,” he posted on his Facebook page.
Refat Chubarov also noted that when national self-government institutions were establishing, the Declaration had not yet been adopted, but there were other international instruments on the rights of indigenous peoples.
“Put simply, the occupation authorities are now depriving Crimean Tatars of their right to ‘speak’ in their own voice. Due to the fact that today the occupation authorities deal shortly with Mejlis, a national authority elected by Crimean Tatars in accordance with international law, some experts say that Russia is preparing for the worst actions against Crimean Tatars,” Chubarov stated.
