Dzhemilev files lawsuit against the FSB due to ban on entry to Crimea

Lawyer Mark Feygin believes that it is the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) who prohibits Dzhemilev from entering Crimea. In January 2016, the Simferopol Court arrested the ex-leader of the Crimean Tatars in absentia.

Mark Feygin, a lawyer of the former chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, Mustafa Dzhemilev, said the lawsuit was filed against the FSB. According to his statement on Twitter, it's the FSB who prohibits Dzhemilev entry into Crimea, and therefore (from the point of view of the Russian authorities) - entry into Russia. Earlier, similar complaints were submitted to the Federal Migration Service (FMS). However, according to Feygin, the agency refused to provide documents on the ban on entry for Dzhemilev.

Since 2014, Mustafa Dzhemilev has been living in Kiev. He moved there after the Federal Migration Service banned him from entering Crimea for 5 years. In February 2015, the Basmanny Court of Moscow dismissed Dzhemilev's complaint about the decision of FMS. On January 21, 2016, the Simferopol court in absentia arrested Dzhemilev. It was reported that he is charged under three articles of the Russian legal code.
