The sanitary state of the general cell "PKU SIZO 1 UFSIN of Russia for the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol", where Tofig Abdulgaziev, an illegally detained Crimean Tatar, was placed, does not meet the established standards, as a result of which he had a blood poisoning. Ukrainian Commissioner for Human Rights, Lyudmyla Denisova, reported this on her Telegram channel.
"The room is teeming with bugs and fleas. Because of insect bites, Tofig Abdulgaziev developed purulent wounds and blood poisoning. Despite the deterioration of his health, he does not receive proper medical care. Now our fellow citizen is placed in the Crimean Republican Clinical Psychiatric Hospital No. 1 named after. N.I. Balabana," - she wrote.
As the Ombudsman stated, this contradicts the guaranteed norms of Art. 3 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, and clauses 10, 22 of the Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners of 08/30/1955, approved by the UN Economic and Social Council.
Denisova urgently asks the Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation, Tatyana Moskalkova, to take urgent measures to restore Abdulgaziev’s rights, namely to help ensure proper conditions of detention, conduct a full medical examination and provide qualified medical care.
As we reported, the health of Crimean Tatar Dzhemil Gafarov who was illegally imprisoned has critically deteriorated.
Rustem Sheikhaliev, Tofik Abdulgaziev, Raim Aivazov, Bilyal Adilov, Dzhemil Gafarov, Farkhod Bazarov, Rustem Seitkhalilov and Shaban Umerov will remain in custody until February 2020.
