Nikolai Polozov, the attorney of the Mejlis Deputy Ilmi Umerov disputed the decision on Umerov's psychiatric examination. This was announced by Polozov on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
According to him, the appeal hasn't yet been considered by the court. Never the less, the attorney believes that the fact of holding a forcible psychiatric examination is an example of aggressive pressure on Umerov.
"FSB officers are perfectly aware that Umerov is an elderly and sick person, thus they treat him in such a cynical inhuman way, sending him to a completely unnecessary examination," - said Polozov.
At the same time Polozov notes that the psychiatric hospital personnel treats Umerov good, he is even given some pharmacological help, without which, according to the lawyer, he could die.
