“Heart disease and diabetes are exacerbating. He got shortness of breath followed by allergic cough, so Edem has to sleep on his feet. Obviously, the medical unit of the prison is not a hospital. So it’s really important to put all efforts and transfer Bekirov to a hospital in-patient unit for appropriate medical examination and treatment,” the lawyer said.
