MOSCOW (QHA) -

Russian lawyer Nikolai Polozov appealed against the refusal of the Tverskoy District Court of Moscow to accept the lawsuits of the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Akhtem Chiygoz and Ilmi Umerov.

The lawyer said this on his Facebook page.

"The refusals of the Tverskoy District Court to accept the lawsuits of Akhtem Chiygoz and Ilmi Umerov to the RF Presidential Administration for information on the pardon decrees are appealed today in the Moscow City Court," he wrote.

Note that on January 26, the Tverskoy District Court of Moscow dismissed the claims of the Deputy Heads of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people.

Previously, on October 25, former political prisoners of the Kremlin, Akhtem Chiygoz and Ilmi Umerov, convicted in the occupied Crimea, were extradited to Turkey.

Umerov noted that he intended to return to Crimea after several meetings in Ukraine.

Reference: on September 27, 2017 Simferopol district "court" sentenced the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ilmi Umerov. The occupation court found him guilty of separatism under article 280.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Public calls for actions aimed at violating the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation) and sentenced him to 2 years in a colony-settlement and 2 years of a ban on public activities.

The so-called Supreme Court of the Crimea on September 11, 2017 fully supported the charge against Akhtem Chiyhoz, Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People that the Prosecutor's Office requested, providing for 8 years of imprisonment.
