On Paril 14, a Russian court will be hearing the case on banning entry of the Crimean Tatar leader to the Russian-occupied Crimea 

22 people have disappeared over the last period in occupied Crimea, the leader of the Crimean Tatar people, Ukrainian MP Mustafa Dzhemilev wrote on Facebook. 

"According to our data, the number of missing people in Crimea is 22 at the moment, most of them are Crimean Tatars. These are the cases we are aware of, but there can be more…" wrote Dzhemilev.

Dzhemilev said there were cases when the fact of the disappearance of individuals was used a threat during interrogations by security forces.

"The disappearance of people is often used by security officials as a threat during interrogations. If the people questioned by the FSB (Russian security service officers) retain their dignity, they can be asked whether they are afraid that they or their children may disappear as well," Dzhemilev said
