SIMFEROPOL / AQMESCIT (QHA) -

The Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people took such a decision on September 22.

According to the decision, the membership of three its members - Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis Eider Adzhimambetov, the Mufti of Crimea Emirali Ablaev and a new "Russian" state employee Ruslan Yakubov - was suspended. The reason is their participation in political activities organized by the occupation authorities (elections, meetings, rallies, canvassing, etc.) in Crimea, as well as performances, statements and comments in the media, incompatible with the status of a delegate of the Qurultai of the Crimean Tatar people.

Moreover, the decision was taken to release Eider Adzhimambetov from the post of the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, since he failed in his duties and was the author of a number of statements and comments incompatible with the status of a delegate of the Qurultai of the Crimean Tatar people.

The Mejlis membership was also suspended for the Crimean Mufti Emirali Ablaev for taking part in political activities organized by the occupation authorities. Having declared himself the spiritual leader, he did not participate in the protection of Muslims persecuted by occupants, remained silent to the facts of illegal searches in mosques, as well as bans on Crimean Tatars peaceful assemblies and rallies.

In addition, Emirali Ablaev made statements, incompatible with the status of a delegate of the Crimean Tatar Qurultai, in several media.

The Mejlis membership was also suspended for Ruslan Yakubov working in the executive bodies of Crimea and taking part in political activities of the occupants. In addition, he made some statements incompatible with the status of a delegate of Qurultai of the Crimean Tatar people.

According to regulations of the Crimean Tatar Qurultai, the decision on withdrawal from the Mejlis is adopted on a regular session of the Qurultai of the Crimean Tatar people.

The Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people is the single highest executive-representative body of the Crimean Tatars, elected by the Qurultai.

The main purpose of the Mejlis is the elimination of the consequences of the genocide committed by the Soviet state against the Crimean Tatars, the restoration of the national and political rights of the Crimean Tatars, as well as realization of their right to freedom of national and state self-determination on their national territory.

The Mejlis activities are regulated by the Qurultai, and guided by its decisions, current Regulations, the Statute on Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, the norms of international law and laws of Ukraine not contradicting them.

The Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people is composed of 33 persons, including the Chairman of the Mejlis.
