MOSCOW (QHA) -

Moscow's Basmanny District Court Feb 12 will consider a lawsuit of Mark Feigin, a lawyer of Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev, who was banned from entering Russian Federation and Crimea for 5 years, Ekho Moskvy reports.

Mr Feigin launched a lawsuit against the Russian Migration Service in Oct over Jemilev’s ban on entry Crimea.

April 22, Crimean Tatar leader, Ukrainian President’s Commissioner on Crimean Tatar Issues Mustafa Jemilev was given notice forbidding him from entering Russia and Crimea for five years as he crossed the border back into Ukraine after spending a weekend in Crimea.

The Mejlis posted online a photo of the ban document. It read: "Notification of non-permission of entry to the Russian Federation".

The paper was not signed and had no letterhead.  

After Jemilev, the same ban was imposed against head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov and Mejlis Advisor on Affairs with Turkey Ismet Yuksel.

All the banished were accused of “extremism and inciting interethnic hatred”.
