Crimean authorities are not going to ban Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people, speaker of Crimean Parliament Vladimir Konstantinov said during the briefing, answering the question about government’s attitude to Mejlis.
“We are not talking about the ban. There is a destructive position of separate Mejlis leaders, not destructive, even not realistic position, I would say. It is hard for me to understand those who made a decision to boycott Parliament elections. Still, they are not living in Crimea anymore, so they don’t know what is happening in Crimea”- Konstantinov said.
Konstantinov emphasized that “the majority of Mejlis members are smart people who will be involved in the process of creating new Crimea”, adding that vice speaker of Crimean Parliament Remzi Ilyasov is ‘on the right side of the hedge’.
As we earlier reported, Crimean Prosecutor warned Mejlis would be banned if “engaged in extremist activity”.
Mejlis head Refat Chubarov was banned from entering Crimea for 5 years, same ban was imposed against Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev. Both were accused of “extremist activity”.
Mejlis has announced it would boycott Parliament elections scheduled for September 2014.
