Mejlis’s advisor on relations with Turkey, public figure, general coordinator of Crimean News Agency Ismet Yuksel has filed a suit against Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), which had banned him from entering Crimea for 5 years.
The first sitting of the court will take place Jan 22 in Moscow. As for Crimea, Simferopol court has dismissed the suit referring to formalities in the documents.
“My ban on entry Crimea was imposed in August, still no official documents were given yet. They should have given me relevant document then, in Armyansk - Yuksel said. In any case, I have a right to use all the legal mechanisms to settle my issue, including international institutions” – he added.
Ismet Yuksel, the general coordinator of QHA Crimean News Agency, has been 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 has been working on many projects to revive Crimean Tatar language and culture, in assistance with the Crimean Tatar diaspora in Turkey. Cooperating with diaspora representatives, Yuksel has implemented big projects, and privately supported creative intelligentsia, scientists and businessmen in Crimea.
Yuksel thus became the third prominent Crimean Tatar to be barred since Crimea’s unification with Russia, along with Crimean Tatar leader and Ukrainian MP Mustafa Jemilev and head of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov.
All of them were accused of extremism and inciting interethnic hatred.
