The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs voiced its position on the illegality of the decision by the “Prosecutor's Office" of the occupied Crimea to suspend the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, TASS reports, citing the statement of Tanju Bilgiç, the official representative of the Turkish MFA, made on Thursday, April 14.
According to the statement, the Mejlis is a legitimate representative body of the Crimean Tatars people.
“We will continue to support - under all circumstances -the protection of the legitimate rights and existence of Crimean Tatars in the peninsula, who became targets of actions contrary to the concepts of justice and human rights,” says the statement.
On April 13, 2016, the "Prosecutor" of the Russian-occupied Crimea Natalia Poklonskaya made a decision to suspend the activities of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars.
The decision will be in effect until the so-called Crimean Supreme Court’s judgment in Poklonskaya’s action is delivered. Previously, she demanded to recognize the Mejlis as extremist organization. Now her lawsuit is pending.
Today, April 15, the hearing in Poklonskaya’s lawsuit on recognition of the Mejlis as extremist organization and banning its activity in the territory of the Russian Federation is being held in Simferopol.
