Human rights defender Emir Usein Kuku involved in the case of "Hizb-ut-Tahrir" was placed in solitary confinement in a mental hospital in Simferopol in the occupied Crimea in terms of a forced psychiatric examination.
This was reported by radio "Liberty" referring to the lawyer Edem Smedlyaev.
The attorney found out about it from reports of other patients who were there. It is possible that Kuku was placed in solitary confinement on the first day of his stay in a psychiatric hospital - from 8 December.
Smedlyaev said that Kuku was isolated for far-fetched reasons. "First they said that he had a scab, then there were no scabs and they came up with something different," he said.
It was reported that the District Court of the occupied Simferopol extended pre-trial detention of defender until February 8, 2017.
