Crimean Tatar prisoner Edem Bekirov was taken to the hospital, attorney Islyam Velilyaev said. He assumes that penal colony workers made this decision after the visit of the Crimean Human Rights Commissioner Liudmila Lubina. She recommended to secure medical tests. The attorney insists on the hospitalization of Bekirov, he says his condition still isn’t go well.
“Last 10 days, since April 30, relatives of my defendant were not allowed to pass medical treatment over him. He has become short-winded, his heart hurts constantly, and he started swelling. He has lack of exercise, doesn’t walk, the space of the detention center hasn’t enough facilities for walks of impaired person,” Velilyaiev said.
Edem Bekirov has an amputated leg. Because of diabetes, it does not heal. He also has heart problems. Russian FSB detained him at the entrance to the occupied peninsula on December 12 last year – allegedly for possession of explosive ammunition. Bekirov was going to visit his elderly mother. The Kremlin-controlled court left Bekirov under detention until June 12.
