Defendant in ‘Hizb ut-Tahrir case’ forcibly sent to psychiatric hospital
One of the six people arrested in the “case of Hizb ut-Tahrir” in Yalta was sent to a psychiatric hospital for a forced examination.
Crimean lawyer Emil Kurbedinov posted this on his Facebook page.
“Now we are waiting for confirmation or refutation of the information. Muslim Aliyev, accused under Part 1, Article 205.5 of the Criminal Code in the so-called ‘case of Hizb ut-Tahrir’, one of the six arrested in Yalta and Alushta, was taken to a psychiatric hospital and is likely to be subjected to forced examination,” the lawyer wrote.
According to Kurbedinov, Muslim, as well as other detainees, refused to undergo “voluntary” psychiatric examination in support of Ilmi Umerov.
“We assume that the FSB launched a massive punitive psychiatry against six Crimean Tatar Muslims. It is unacceptable in the 21st century to put people in psychiatric hospitals for their views and political position. This goes beyond all possible limits of Russian fight against dissident Crimean Tatar Muslims,” Kurbedinov said.
As reported, the Russian de facto authooties in Crimea carries out repressive measures against the Crimean Muslims, accusing them of involvement in the activity of ‘Hizb ut-Tahrir’ international Islamic political organization, which is considered to be a terrorist organization in Russia.
