Simferopol (QHA) -

The Court has declined an appeal of Dzhemilev’s lawyer Alexander Lesovoy not to send Dzhemilev to Kyiv for re-examination of his mental health, Komsomolskaya Pravda in Ukraine reports.

In spite of Lesovoy’s arguments that transportation to Kyiv may cause temporary or permanent damage to his client’s mental health, the Court made a decision that Dzhemilev will be transported to Kyiv.

“It will take 3 weeks to get to Kyiv as there is no direct train from Simferopol to Kyiv for those in detention”, said Lesovoy.

“Taking into account that Hayser has mental disorders and will have to spend all this time with unknown people, anything can happen”, he stressed.

According to the lawyer he appealed to Penitentiary Service of Ukraine to get the details of transporting people with mental disorders and whether they are provided with a separate cell and safeguards.

The date of transportation in unknown. As reported earlier, in May, 32-year old Hayser Dzhemilev killed a man, presumably as a result of a careless handling of a registered gun belonging to his father.

After forensic psychiatric examination conducted by local doctors didn’t bring results, Simferopol Court took a decision to send Hayser Dzhemilev to Kyiv for mental health re-examination.
