Another one Crimean Muslim is punished by psychiatry
Crimean Muslim Vadym Siruk, who is accused by Russian occupation authority in Crimea in involvement into the “Hizb ut-Tahrir”, was sent to forced psychiatric examination.
His wife Anna Bohacheva wrote on her Facebook page.
“According to unconfirmed information, Vadym was taken from prison to a psychiatric hospital for examination this morning, which will last at least 21 days,” she said.
Bohachova noted that this is the fifth example of compulsory inpatient psychiatric examination against the Crimean Muslims.
She recalled that in solidarity with the deputy chairman of the Mejlis Ilmi Umerov, who also had such an examination, a number of political prisoners, including Siruk, refused to take it voluntarily.
“The investigation considered necessary, despite their adequate behavior, a compulsory psychiatric examination. Muslim Aliyev has been in a hospital for two weeks, Refat Alimov and Arsen Dzhepparov – for a week. Today, Vadym Siruk joins them,” – she added.
In early November, authorities in annexed Crimea ordered to conduct such examination for six Crimean political prisoners.
