A prayer service (dua) will be held today in the city of Bakhchisarai at the house of the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People Ilmi Umerov, who has been forcibly transferred from a hospital to a psychiatric clinic.
The representatives of the Crimean Tatar Community in the Republic of Turkey will join the prayer due to be held at 6.00 p.m. answering the Internet call by the Secretary of the World Congress of Crimean Tatars, Namık Kemal Bayar.
May 19, the occupation authorities accused Umerov of separatist statements during his speech at the ATR TV Channel when the Mejlis Deputy Chairman said "it is necessary to force Russia to pull back from Crimea and Donbas."
Following that, the FSB in the Crimea has launched a criminal case against Umerov "on suspicion of incitement to violation of territorial integrity of the Russian Federation." Ilmi Umerov started feeling sick at the hearing on August, 11 in the city of Simferopol. He was hospitalized with heart attack risk.
August, 18 FSB officers illegally transferred Umerov from the hospital to a psychiatric clinic, taking away vital medication and allowing him to see his family in a strictly specified time.
