All the “violations”, that Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people was accused of, should not be considered as extremism.
Member of President Council for Human Rights of Russia Aleksandr Verkhovsky announced this, Kommersant newspaper reports.
Verkhovsky explained that the definition for “extremism” is given in the Article 1 of Russian law of extremism.
“For example, ‘forcible change of the constitutional order and the violation of integrity of Russian Federation’ is considered as extremism, still Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people expressed their aspiration for autonomy”- he noted.
The expert also noted, “there is no such law [on extremism,-ed.] in Ukraine, so when accusing Chubarov of extremism, Crimean Prosecutor Poklonskaya meant disloyal behavior”.
Verkhovsky also stressed, that “Poklonskaya was appointed recently and brought up not in Russian legislation, so one should treat her statements with indulgence”.
As we earlier reported, May 5, Crimean Prosecutor Poklonskaya accused Crimean Tatar Mejlis head Refat Chubarov of extremist activities.
Chubarov was banned from entering Crimea for 5 years. The same ban was imposed against Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev in May.
Poklonskaya also threatened to ban Mejlis, if engaged in extremist activity.
