Court refuses to consider complaint of Circassian activist Topchu
Tarik Topchu was too late to appeal against the abolition of his residence permit, the Supreme Court (SC) of the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic (KBR) has ruled.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on August 1, 2018, the KBR's MIA annulled the Tarik Topchu's residence permit in Russia. The case has been considered by the KBR's DC behind closed doors, as the judge has explained that the case file contain some state secrets.
The court found that the deadline for lodging an appeal was missed, said Beslan Khagazhei, an advocate.
