The lawyer noted that the forensic psychiatric examination is to be set up within 21 days. It's been 20 days already that Umerov is in the hospital.
Mark Feygin, a lawyer of Ilmi Umerov, said that the deputy head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ilmi Umerov may be released from a psycho hospital. He announced this on the 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"Forensic psychiatric examination can last for 21 days, so it can be dragged on... But it may happen today, or tomorrow, but it won't last long because they don't need publicity in this story... We need to keep pressing, because even if we manage to him out from the psycho ward, the criminal case will be continued," - he said.
Umerov family appealed to the government and human rights activists called for to facilitate his release.
