After passing a decision to ban the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people by the Supreme Court of Russia criminal cases will be opened for each meeting of the Mejlis, Deputy Head of the Mejlis Ilmi Umerov has said.

“The Supreme Court of Russia decided to ban the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people… Despite the fact that we do not recognize this decision and despite the fact that the Mejlis is not a nongovernmental organization – this is the elected representative body of Crimean Tatars, now criminal cases will be opened for each of our meetings. Until recently they imposed only small fines for participation in the banned organization,” Umerov said.
