Six residents of Crimean city of Chernomorskoe were fined 10 thousand rubles for participating in protests in May 3, when Crimean Tatars blocked off Crimean roads in protest to Mustafa Jemilev’s ban to enter Crimea.
According to Emil Kurtbedinov, the lawyer of those who were fined, the court “copies the decision without paying attention to the arguments”.
Earlier, 4 residents of Bakhchisaray were also fined. Sittings of the court on the same case are taking place in Simferopol, Kirovskiy, Belogorskiy and other regions of Crimea.
