The court has dismissed a suit of Illarion Vasilyev—an attorney of Ismet Yuksel—against Meshansky Court’s decision to transfer Yuksel’s case, marked top secret, to Moscow City Court. The decision was made amid Vasilyev absence at the court hearing.
“I do not agree with the decision, as I see no reasons for marking the case top secret. Such a ban [on entry Crimea imposed on Yuksel, -ed.] violates human rights, and Russian Federal Law “On state secret” reads that information about human rights violations cannot be classified as secret.
To recall, the previous suit brought by Yuksel-- Mejlis Advisor on Affairs with Turkey, General Coordinator of Crimean News Agency Ismet Yuksel, against Russia’s Federal Security Service’s decision to ban him from entering Crimea for 5 years was also dismissed.
Ismet Yuksel was banned from entering Crimea for five years after being turned back on August 9th when he tried to enter Crimea from mainland Ukraine.
The authorities gave Yuksel no reason when he was turned away along with his family as they were returning from Turkey.
Yuksel is the third prominent Crimean Tatar to be barred from Crimea since its unification with Russia in March, along with Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev and head of the Crimean Tatar Mejlis Refat Chubarov. All of them are accused of “extremist activity and inciting interethnic hatred”.
