The court hearing into the case of a member of the Crimean Tatar Mejlis, Mustafa Maushev, accused of participating in the meetings of the "public organization banned in Russia and Crimea," that is, the Mejlis, was postponed due to his claim to conduct a trial in the Crimean Tatar language, the head of the Central Election Commission of the Crimean Tatar Qurultai, Zair Smedlyaev, posted on his Facebook page. 

“The trial of a member of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, Mustafa Maushev, was postponed to October 20, since he demanded the hearing be conducted in his native Crimean Tatar language,” - he wrote.

September 29, the Supreme Court of Russia held a hearing into the case "On the prohibition of the activities of the public association "Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people" under the Article 9 of the Federal Law of 25.07.2002, No.1145-FL" On counteracting extremist activity."

The panel of judges of the Supreme Court of Russia in Moscow banned the activity of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people on the territory of the Russian Federation and Crimea.

September 30, six Mejlis members in the occupied Crimea - Emine Avamileva, Dilyaver Akkiev, Mustafa Maushev, Bekir Mamut, Tabah Sadikhov and Shevket Kaybullaev – were summoned to the General Directorate for Combating Extremism of the MIA of Russia, where the administrative protocols on their participation in "illegal gatherings" were drawn up. Besides them, Enver Kurt did not come to the center, requiring a letter of invitation, and Abduraman Egiz could not come because of illness.
