Simferopol (QHA) - Simferopol court sends the son of head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people and Member of Parliament of Ukraine M. Dzhemilev, Hayser, for mental health re-examination to Kyiv, informs Radio Svoboda. At present, Hayser Dzhemilev is still at Simferopol detention center. Recently, the court re-assigned detention for two more months. Hayser is accused in intentional murder. His lawyer insists it was an accident, perhaps in a state of a mental break down. Forensic psychiatric examination conducted in June-July by local doctors, due to complexity didn’t bring results, thus it was recommended to conduct re-examination in another psychiatric establishment. In turn, Hayser Dzhemilev’s lawyer Alexander Lesovoy stands against his examination being made in Kyiv. He believes that transportation may cause temporary or permanent damage to his client’s mental health. Lesovoy filed an appeal against the court decision, informs press service of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people. Lesovoy believes that due to the lack of facilities for safe escorting of Hayser from Simferopol to Kyiv, carrying out psychological, psychiatric and drug examination is possible at Simferopol’s hospital with participation of experts from Kyiv who could be sent to Simferopol on a duty journey. To be noted, Turkish doctor Yasin Genç, who had previously treated Hayser in Turkey, provided his medical history to the investigation, recommending his ex-patient to be re-examined. As reported earlier, in May, 32-year old Hayser Dzhemilev killed a man, presumably as a result of a careless handling of a registered gun.
