A hearing by the "Supreme Court of the Republic of Crimea" in a lawsuit, filed by the "Prosecutor's Office of Crimea" seeking to recognize the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People as an extremist organization and ban it on the territory of the Russian Federation, has been rescheduled for April 25, a source in Crimea told QHA.
The reason was the absence of the chief defendant Nariman Dzhelyal.
April,8 "the Supreme Court of the Republic of Crimea" held a regular hearing into the lawsuit, lodged by "the Prosecutor's Office of Crimea" seeking to recognize the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People as an extremist organization and ban its activities in the Russian Federation. The hearing was postponed until April 15 since the "Crimean Prosecutor's Office" provided new materials on the case, allegedly containing evidence against the Mejlis Chairman Refat Chubarov. The defense requested time to study the new materials.
April, 13 the self-proclaimed "Crimean Prosecutor" Natalia Poklonskaya rendered a decision "to suspend the activities of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People" citing Sections 9 and 10 of the Federal Law "On Countering Extremist Activity." The decision by the "Prosecutor's Office of Crimea" was sent to the Ministry of Justice in order that the latter includes the body in the general list of public and religious organizations banned in the Russian Federation and occupied Crimea.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko responded to the ban on the Mejlis saying the reason for the prohibition of the representative body of the Crimean Tatar people is the authoritarian fear of the self-organization of free people.
