Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People Ilmi Umerov should undergo an independent medical examination, lawyer Mark Feigin told Ukrinform.
He returned from the Crimea at 4.00 p.m. We discussed many issues concerning the strategy and tactics to protect the Crimean Tatars, including the Ilmi Umerov’s case as well. I don’t take his release from a mental hospital as a victory, rather a first step on the right track, Feigin said.
The lawyer said that a possible next step in Umerov’s case will be to undergo an independent medical examination outside the territory of Russia and the occupied Crimea.
Once a serious illness is disclosed, the court can exempt liability from Umerov in this already extremely precarious case. Anyone who saw him talking on air of the ATR TV Channel will confirm there was not any extremism, said the lawyer.
Ilmi Umerov was illegally held in a psychiatric hospital in the city of Simferopol. He was released on Wednesday, January 7. Umerov claimed he would defend their rights.
