Today, on June 30, the representatives of the Public Prosecutor’s Office in the Crimea conducted an inspection in the Crimean Tatar children’s center Elif in Dzhankoy. Director of the children’s center Liutfiye Zudiyeva told about the inspection in detail in a comment for QirimInfo.
The inspection was conducted by a total of 6 people: representatives of the Public Prosecutor’s Office, the police, the Ministry for Emergency Situations, the Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare and the department of education of the city administration.
The director of the center wasn’t notified in advance about the upcoming inspection. The inspectors demanded the center’s staff should provide all the business documentation.
«As I wasn’t there at that moment, the center’s employees refused to show any documents before my arrival», – Zudiyeva informed.
The inspection lasted for a total of an hour and a half.
«They checked all the documentation in the center. The representative of the Ministry for Emergency Situations walked around the center, inspected everything with regard to the compliance with all the requirements: fire alarm, fire extinguishers, etc.; the representative of the Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare checked the kitchen and the bathroom», – the director of the center told.
The inspectors also expressed their concern with regard to the absense of the list of websites which are prohibited to view under the legislation of the Russian Federation.
«I explained we only had pre-schoolers, they cannot use the Internet, but they told me we still needed to have that list », – Zudiyeva informed.
The inspectors also were outraged that their every visit was actively covered in the social networks and mass media.
Important to note, in January, the law-enforcers seized children’s literature in the Crimean Tatar and Turkish languages, in the children’s center Elif.
Later, on February 16, representatives of the Public Prosecutor’s Office came to the center, demanding to provide documents in the framework of the «consideration of citizens’ appeal». Moreover, director of the center Liutfiye Zudiyeva was summoned to the city administration and the tax inspectorate.
The Crimean Tatar children’s center Elif started working in October 2015, and has been registered in compliance with the legislation of the Russian Federation. Children of 2 to 6 years are educated there.
