Mejlis lawyers filed a motion seeking to summon to court as witnesses Remzi Ilyasov, Zaur Smirnov, Eskender Belyalov, Sadykh Tabakh, Mufti Emirali Ablayev, as well as Zair Smedlyayev and Ilmi Umerov, members of the Field Human Rights Center told the Center for Journalist Investigations.
“According to the judges, most of the individuals listed in the motion will provide no more information than is already available in the motion,” members of the human rights group said.
They also noted that refusals to grant the motions were prepared before the hearing.
“Seeing the judges reading pre-typed copies of the refusals, one got the feeling that they were prepared before the hearing,” members of the Field Human Rights Center said.
It was reported earlier that a hearing in a lawsuit seeking to ban the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars was rescheduled for April 25. The judges cited the failure of Nariman Jelyal, Mejlis Deputy Chairman, to show up for the hearing as one of the possible reasons for its rescheduling.
On April 13, 2016, Natalya Poklonskaya, the so-called Crimea’s Prosecutor General, made a statement saying that the Mejlis’s activities in Crimea were suspended. The decision will be valid until ‘Crimea’s Supreme Court’ has delivered a verdict in a lawsuit seeking to ban the Mejlis.
