Ukraine’s Ombudsman Lyudmyla Denisova appealed to the Russian side demanding to provide information about the health condition of Edem Bekirov kept in Simferopol prison, as said in Denisova’s published on Facebook open letter to her Russian colleague Tatyana Moskalkova.
She reminded that earlier Moskalkova promised that Bekirov would be taken to Simferopol hospital for medical examination and treatment. Yet, instead of promised two weeks, he spent three days in the hospital, and then returned to Simferopol prison.
As his lawyer said on January 23, he felt much worse.
“There are no results of the medical examination which he needs so much. It means that Edem does not receive professional medical treatment. That is why I am appealing to you and ask you to provide Edem Bekirov and his lawyers with the copy of a medical report, give him full-fledged treatment in compliance with the doctors’ recommendations,” Denisova stated.
As we reported earlier, the Russian law enforcers detained Crimean Tatar Edem Bekirov at the entrance to the occupied Crimea from Chongar.
“On December 12, 2018, Ukrainian citizen, a Crimean Tatar Edem Bekirov was detained at the entrance to the occupied Crimea. He was born in 1961, he lives in Novooleksiivka, Kherson region. It is known that Edem was heading to Crimea to visit his 78-year-old mother and relatives,” the Chairman of Mejlis of Crimean Tatars Refat Chubarov stated.
According to Chubarov, Berkirov was arrested during passport control on the territory controlled by the Russian law enforcers. Later, Chubarov noted that the detainee was taken to Russia’s Security Service office in the annexed Simferopol.
