Abmedzhit Suleymanov, Coordinator of the Committee to Protect the Rights of the Crimean Tatar People told the QHA (Crimea News Agency) the deportation of Recep Shen, a member with the Crimean Tatar diaspora in Turkey, is simply a regrettable misunderstanding.
- Even the guards were making excuses when they could not permit him entry. They said, “We understand everything, but the law is the law, and we cannot break it," said Suleymanov.
According to him, the decision to deport will be appealed at the highest levels, up to the changes in the Ukraine’s legislation.
- This is a shortcoming of the Ukraine’s Government when a person brings humanitarian aid and is refused entry. Doesn’t Ukraine want help? The Coordinator of the Committee to Protect the Rights of the Crimean Tatar People expressed his indignation.
