The forced detention in psychiatric hospital and conducting psychiatric examination of the deputy chairman of the Mejlis Ilmi Umerov against whom a criminal case was opened for "separatism" in May 2016, is a flagrant violation of international human rights standards. This is said in the statement of the EU Delegation Press Secretary in Ukraine, published on Facebook.
"We call for his (Umerov - Ed.) immediate release. Taking into account the serious concerns about the state of his health, emergency adequate medical care should be provided.", - Said in a statement.
As noted, the European Union has repeatedly stressed the deterioration of the human rights situation in the Crimea and Sevastopol since their illegal annexation by the Russian Federation. On the rights of the Crimean Tatars was committed serious attack as a result of the banning of the Mejlis, the Crimean Tatar self-government, and announcement of it as "extremist organization".
