KYIV (QHA) -

Defense of Deputy Chairmen of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Akhtem Chiygoz and Ilmi Umerov filed two administrative lawsuits with the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation (RF), attorney Nikolai Polozov reported on his Twitter page.

“I filed two administrative lawsuits against the administration of President Putin on behalf of Akhtem Chiygoz and Ilmi Umerov demanding information on the pardons," he wrote.

The lawyer stressed that the secrecy of the decree on pardon violates Part 2 of Art. 24 of the RF Constitution.

Earlier, lawyer Nikolai Polozov noted that to date no documents provide the basis for the "pardon" of the Deputy Cchairmen of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Akhtem Chiyhoz and Ilmi Umerov.

October 25 Deputy Chairmen of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Akhtem Chiygoz and Ilmi Umerov, convicted in the occupied Crimea, were extradited to Turkey.

Chyigoz and Umerov were first brought to Simferopol, and then sent to Anapa by plane. The plane with representatives of Mejlis flew to Ankara at 13.37 local time.

Later information appeared that they arrived in Turkey.

Previously, September 11, the so-called Supreme Court of the Crimea fully supported the charge against the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Akhtem Chyigoz. The prosecutor's office requested 8 years of imprisonment for him.

On September 27, the Simferopol district court sentenced Ilmi Umerov, Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people. The occupation court found him guilty of separatism under article 280.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Public calls for actions aimed at violating the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation) and sentenced him to 2 years in a colony-settlement and 2 years of a ban on public activities.
