Russian Federal Security Service officers came to the hospital where the Deputy Cairman of the Crimean Tatar Mejlis Ilmi Umerov is being treated. They required the doctors to discharge the suspect, the Chairman of Mejlis Refat Chubarov told a press conference "Trials of the Crimean Tatars in Crimea”, as cited by a QHA correspondent.
August 11, the court granted the application of the of the FSB investigator to commit Ilmi Umerov for inpatient psychiatric examination. Umerov was taken from the courtroom to the hospital after a hypertensive crisis that occurred during the trial.
“Yesterday the FSB representatives were there [in the hospital, where Ilmi Umerov is being treated -. Ed.]. They in some way put pressure on doctors to have Umerov discharged, in order to implement the judgment of his compulsory psychiatric examination,” Chubarov reported.
He said that FSB officers ignored the fact that the defence appealed the judgment of the Kiev District Court of Simferopol on compulsory inpatient psychiatric examination of Ilmi Umerov.
“Until the appeal court decision this judgment has not entered into force,” the lawyer Nikolai Polozov wrote on his Facebook page.
The Mejlis Speaker has suggested that the officers will try to execute the judgment of the illegitimate court, contrary to the Russian law.
