In his interview with the Day newspaper, Mustafa Jemilev said that due to a possible ban on the activities of the Mejlis not only the members of the highest representative body of Crimean Tatars will be under the threat of prosecution by the occupation authorities, but also the members of the regional Mejlises, the number of which amounts to several thousand in Crimea.
“Mejlis is charged with encroachment on the security and territorial integrity of the Russian Federation, since it does not recognize the occupation of the peninsula. Thus, several thousand people - not only 33 members of the Mejlis as the highest representative body of Crimean Tatars - but also the members of local and regional Mejlises (about 2,300 people) are under threat. It is a declaration of war to all the Crimean Tatar people: in fact, ordinary citizens are also "guilty" as they have chosen the "extremists.” Therefore, they also have to bear the responsibility,” Jemilev said.
On March 18, Mustafa Jemilev will deliver his speech at the UN Security Council, and tell about the violation of the Crimean Tatars’ rights in Crimea, in particular, about the attempt of Russian-controlled Crimea authorities to ban the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people.
As QHA reported earlier, today, 17 March, the Supreme Court of the Republic of Crimea holds the hearing of the claim of the Crimean Prosecutor's Office on recognition of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars as extremist organization and ban on its activities in the Russian Federation.
