KRASNODAR (QHA) -

Crimean Tatar Nedim Khalilov, who was deported from Crimea by the occupiers, and went on a hunger strike until his return home or death, is being transported by Russian law enforcement officers from the village of Vardane to the Gulkevichi prison camp in Rostov region.

He could not endure the road of 600 km long because of ill health as a result of exhaustion, Crimean Tatar activist Zevid Haziyev posted on his Facebook page.

“Today, December 29, 2016, at 6:30 a.m. it was reported that Nedim Khalilov together with other prisoners is being convoyed to another camp in Gulkevichi. He was given just one hour for preparations. Khalilov has been on hunger strike for 38 days, being refused hospitalization and medical supervision. He may not endure the road of 600 kilometers with other 150 prisoners, and even if he survives his health will be seriously affected. So, the axe is about to fall over the victim, and it is not justice,” reads the message. 

As QHA reported earlier, Nedim Khalilov was expelled from Crimea by the court. The reason for the deportation was his Soviet passport. However, the Crimean Tatar principally rejected other documents.
