The Lawyer Mark Feigin defending the Deputy Chairman of the Crimean Tatar Mejlis Ilmi Umerov, intends to seek support of Amnesty International according to his Twitter.
“Following the "Memorial’s" statement about the persecution of Umerov, I intend to apply for support to Amnesty International," said the Russian lawyer.
August 3, Russian Human Right Centre "Memorial" called the prosecution of the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ilmi Umerov illegal and politically motivated.
May 12, Crimean prosecutor Natalia Poklonskaya said that FSB investigators brought a criminal case against Ilmi Umerov charging him with extremism. The persecution was encouraged by the interview Umerov gave ATR television channel. The same day his home was searched.
