Поклонская назвала смешным дело ГПУ по запрету Меджлиса в Крыму

“Prosecutor” of the occupied Crimea Natalia Polonskaya called the funny the beginning of the General Prosecutor of Ukraine, criminal proceedings on the fact of prohibition “by the Prosecutor’s office of the Republic of Crimea” activity of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people on the territory of the annexed Peninsula. She declared it in the comment “TASS”.

“I can only cause laughter. Let them not mislead people. And do not show the appearance of work,” said Poklonski.

She explained her position by the fact that the commencement of criminal proceedings simply means the introduction of materials in the registry, “but the criminal code of Ukraine there is no article on which to initiate proceedings on the fact of prohibition of the Assembly”.

“It only tells you that the materials that they don’t like, entered in the unified register of pre-trial investigation. But this does not mean that it is a criminal offence. Just a thought, how did they managed to introduce such article into the criminal code. Maybe for the night and done, I was not interested. They practice it – change the criminal code for a specific matter, type of article, clean it up,” says the Prosecutor.

Earlier it was reported that the GPU started criminal proceedings on the fact of the ban of the Mejlis in Crimea.
