Muslim Aliev, the Crimean Tatar activist, detained by the Russian authorities and charged with membership in Hizb-Ut Tahrir terrorist organization, will undergo the compulsory psychological expertise. Ilmi Umerov, the Deputy Head of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars reported this while on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

‘It’s been several months since they put him in the pre-trial detention centre; another six men stay with him. They were told there will be a mandatory psychiatric expertise, because they refused from the dispensary expertise, saying there is no need to do that. This expertise is one of the methods used by the special services; actually, one huge torture,’ Umerov said.

The Crimean Tatar politician had previously undergone the same procedure.

According to Umerov, Ukraine needs to submit amendments for the Constitution regarding the status of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, to get more chances for the peninsula’s return back to Ukraine.

‘Crimea’s status should be changed from the territorial to the national one. Then, Ukraine will have more opportunities to fight for Crimea. The rights of Crimean Tatars will have to be restored, and the issue will be discussed a lot,’ Umerov said.
