Documents on the decision of the Supreme Court of Moscow to ban the leader of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev from the Russian-occupied Crimea were provided to the defense only after misconduct of the court staff was made public. The lawyer of the People's Deputy of Ukraine, Mark Feigin, reported on the issue on his Twitter.
Russian lawyer claims that the Supreme Court deliberately tried to run out of deadlines for applications to the ECHR in the case.
“What I can say about the Russian judicial system. One and a half months I can not receive the decision of the Supreme Court on my complaint against Dzhemilev’s ban. The keep stalling time.”
“Supreme Court is deliberately dragging the decisions on Dzhemilev to actually deprive him the right to apply for the ECHR.”
“You'll laugh, but the decision on Dzhemilev was immediately found. I went to the Moscow City Court to take it.”
“Now the case on Dzhemilev’s ban to enter the Russian Federation will be forwarded to the ECHR. Yes. With the compensation.”
In 2014 Mustafa Dzhemilev tried to enter the territory of Russian-annexed Crimea, but the Russian border guards informed that he could not cross the border of mainland Ukraine and the Crimea until 2019. Later, the Kyiv District Court of Simferopol arrested Dzhemilev in absentia. Criminal case was filed against the leader of the Crimean Tatar people under three articles of the RF Criminal Code.
