A lawyer for Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev intends to get formal respond from Russia regarding Jemilev’s ban to enter Crimea. It will be impossible to appeal to European Court for Human Rights without official respond from the police, Mustafa Jemilev said to QHA.
“My lawyer is seeking for real documents which ground my ban. It impossible to appeal to European Court for Human Rights referring not court decisions but to Internet articles, especially since Russian side denies any ban. They (Russian court, -ed) should make it clear, whether I am allowed to Crimea or not. If not, they should show the court’s decision on the issue. This decisions will be disputed in the ECHR”- Jekilev said.
As we earlier reported, Mark Feygin, a lawyer for former Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Jemilev, has filed a lawsuit at Moscow's Basmanny Court to declare illegal a ban on his client's entry into Russia.
In May, 2014, Jemilev was banned from entry Crimea for 5 years accused of “extremist activity”.
