MOSCOW (QHA) -

Basmanny Court of Moscow has dismissed an appeal against Russian Migration Service (FMS) filed by Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev, banished from entering Russia and Crimea for 5 years.

April 22, Jemilev was given a "Notification of non-permission of entry to the Russian Federation" as he crossed the border back into Ukraine from Crimea.

As the paper was not signed and had no letterhead, the FMS rejected its authorship of the document, saying it made no decisions regarding Mustafa Jemilev’s ban.

Jemilev’s lawyer is working on finding those who made the decision on Jemilev’s ban on entry Crimea and the Russian Federation.

“You cannot argue something that does not exist, until those, responsible for the ban, will show this document”- Feygin said.  

April 22, Crimean Tatar leader, Ukrainian President’s Commissioner on Crimean Tatar Issues Mustafa Jemilev was given notice forbidding him from entering Russia and Crimea for five years as he crossed the border back into Ukraine after spending a weekend in Crimea.

The same ban was imposed against head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov and Mejlis Advisor on Affairs with Turkey Ismet Yuksel.

All the banished were accused of “extremism and inciting interethnic hatred”.
