Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 11.01.2023

We are concerned by today’s (11 January) prison sentences of 13 years against our Crimean Tatar kinsmen Cemil Gafarov, Servet Gaziyev, Erfan Osmanov, Alim Karimov and Seyran Murtaza.

We reiterate our support to Crimean Tatars’ right to live freely and safely in their homelands, and expect the necessary steps to be taken to ensure that all our kinsmen, who are imprisoned in Crimea for similar political reasons, including the Deputy Speaker of the Crimean Tatar Mejlis Neriman Celal, Aziz Ahmetov and Asan Ahmetov, are immediately freed and reunited with their families.
