Mejlis Crimean Tatar People is concerned over cases of kidnapping and disappearances of people in Crimea, as well as Crimean authorities' lack of response to such cases and calles on international organizations to make every effort to prevent escalation of violation against civilian population of Crimea.
This was announced on June 12, at the extra-ordinary session of Mejlis, amid the facts of kidnapping in the region.
As reported, Mejlis will appeal to United Nations (UN), Organization for Security and co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and international human rights organizations.
“Recently, Crimean society faced with a very dangerous fact that never occurred in Crimea before – the kidnapping.
In the beginning of March, Reshat Ametov, a Muslim and a father of 3 children was kidnapped and found dead after 2 weeks.
The kidnapping of Ametov, that occurred at the central square of Simferopol was recorded at the video by journalists, still the incident has not been detected and the guilty persons have not been punished yet.
In the end of May, 3 Crimea residents, activists of NGO “Ukrainian house” Leonid Korzh, Timur Shaymardanov and Seyran Zinedinov were also reported missing.
Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people consider these acts of violence towards civilian population as the actions to frighten Crimean society. The fact that the cases are not detected yet means that elementary human rights to life and safety are ignored in Crimea”- reads the statement.
Earlier, Religious Administration of Muslims of Crimea urged Crimean authorities to take necessary measures to investigate the missing of people in Crimea and numerous law violations and to prevent the new ones.
