After surgery in the sixth Simferopol hospital, Arsen Dzhepparov, arrested in the "Hizb ut-Tahrir" case, was immediately sent to jail without painkillers, his wife Zarina Dzhepparova posted on Facebook.
"After the surgery, which was carried out under general anesthesia, he was transferred back to prison and placed in an ordinary cell; he was left without supervision of doctors, and without painkillers. So, they performed an operation as we sought, but no one promised proper treatment. Treatment of pre-trial detainees (their guilt has not proved yet) is just on the brink of all conceivable and inconceivable behavior," she wrote.
It was reported earlier that Arsen Dzhepparov urgently needed surgical intervention.
On April 18, 2016, Russian security forces arrested two Crimean Tatars Arsen Dzhepparov and Refat Aliyev after searches of their homes in the village of Krasnokamenka (Big Yalta) in Crimea. They were accused of involvement in "Hizb ut-Tahrir" organization, banned in Russia.
The so-called "Hizb ut-Tahrir" case has become the hallmark of the FSB struggle against Muslim dissidents in Crimea. Under the pretext of suspicion of terrorism and calling their repressive actions as struggle with extremism, the Russian security forces burst into the houses, conduct illegal searches and detentions.
