Crimean Tatar Ervin Ibragimov, the member of the regional Mejlis, has been reported missing in Crimea's Bakhchisaray, a local journalist Nadj Femi wrote on Facebook.
"The Crimean Tatar ex-deputy of the city council and member of the regional Mejlis Ervin Ibragimov has been reported missing in Bakhchisaray. His car was found abandoned in the middle of the road. His parents know nothing about his whereabouts. It's impossible to get in touch with him," she wrote.

In most cases, the rights are violated of those people, including the Crimean Tatars, who oppose the Russian occupation regime.
In late April, Russia banned the Mejlis, the executive representative body of the Crimean Tatars, as an "extremist organization". The Kremlin decision triggered harsh criticism from the European institutions and human rights organizations.
