The Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis Nariman Dzhelialov said, that Mejlis members would lodge an appeal in the near future.
"We will be able to prepare the appeal only after having the full text of the court’s decision in our hands [to ban the Mejlis]. We were told, that it would be no earlier, than on the 29th of April, and in fact, most likely, on the 4th of May. Then we will be able to receive both an official protocol, and text of the decision with all the signatures and stamps", — he explained in the commentary to QirimInfo.
According to Dzhelialov, the defense determined to go to the international courts in the consideration of the case.
"The team of lawyers, which helped us all the time, would prepare an appeal. We want to use all the legal procedures in order to reach the European Court", — he said.
Let us recall, today, on the 26th of April, "Supreme Court of Crimea" recognized the Mejlis as an extremist organization and banned its activities in the occupied Crimea.
"To recognize the public association "Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people" as an extremist organization and ban its activity on the territory of the Russian Federation", — it is said in the decision of the panel of judges, which is headed by Natalia Terentieva.
Russian prosecutor of Crimea Natalia Poklonska called the decision reasonable. According to her, it is "aimed at ensuring stability, peace and order in the Russian Federation".
Earlier Nariman Dzhelialov gave QirimInfo a comment, that during the trial proceedings "procuracy” appealed to the activities and statements of the Mejlis Chairman Refat Chubarov, Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Dzhemilev and Crimea Сivil blockade organizer Lenur Islyamov. In addition, the accuser insisted on the ban of the Majlis as a public organization, while it is not that one.
