BAKHCHISARAY (QHA) -

The Bakhchisaray district court held a hearing to review the administrative protocol against a member of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Zeynur Yakubov.

Consideration was postponed due to the fact that Zeynur Yakubov was not sufficiently familiarized with the case materials, said Emine Avamileva who represented the interests of Yakubov in the court.

“The judge considered the case alone. The court granted several motions of Zeynur Yakubov and the defense presented by Emine Avamileva. Since Zeynur Yakubov had not been given a copy of the protocol on administrative offense, and was not familiar with the other materials of administrative proceedings, a motion was appealed to postpone consideration of the case, and later granted by the court. The next hearing will take place on October 26 at 15:00 in the Bakhchisaray district court,” she said.

As QHA reported earlier, on October 18 security officials visited the home of a member of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, a member of the Crimean Tatar national movement Zeynur Yakubov, who is accused of "involvement in the organization of grouping prohibited on the territory of the Russian Federation and Crimea."

September 29, 2016, the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation dismissed the appeal of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people against the ruling of the so-called Supreme Court of the Republic of Crimea on 26 April 2016 on the recognition of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people "extremist" organization and ban its activity in the territory of the Russian Federation, as well as in the occupied Crimea.

Ukraine and the world community has not recognized and firmly condemned the decision of the Russian court.

September 30, eight members of the Mejlis in the occupied Crimea - Emine Avamilev, Dilyaver Akkiev, Mustafa Maushev, Bekir Mamut, Tabah Sadikhov, Shevket Kaybullaev, Enver Kurtiev and Abduraman Egiz - were summoned to the General Directorate for Combating Extremism Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia. They were included in the administrative report for participation in the "forbidden meetings." Later the Crimean judge imposed fines.
