According to her, Aliev is illegally held in remand center No.1 of Russia's Federal Penitentiary Service (Bashkortostan, Russia).
Denisova claims that Aliev did not get any urgent medical assistance, even though the case was confirmed officially. His cellmate was isolated in a separate cell.
The Ukrainian official added that other Ukrainian political prisoners - Vadym Siruk, Emir-Usein Kuku, Enver Bekirov, and Arsen Dzhepparov are in the same detention facility. So, they risk getting infected as well. Lyudmyla Denisova claims that managers of detention centres ignore the demands of inmates who ask for medical assistance.
Muslim Aliev was detained in Yalta (occupied Crimea) in 2016. He is charged with membership in Hizb Ut-Tahrir, the Islamist movement that is banned in Russia. The Russian court sentenced Crimean Tatar to 19 years in prison.
