Crimean Tatar activist Edem Bekirov who is kept in the Simferopol detention center in the occupied Crimea, is forced to do dressings on a festering amputated leg himself.

Wife of the Crimean Tatar activist arrested in the annexed Crimea, Gulnara Bekirova told QHA media about the situation.

According to her, the FSB investigator did not allow Edem’s daughter Eleanora to bandage her father.

Before interrogation the lawyer asked to give fifteen minutes! To which the investigator responded very aggressively: “No bandaging! Do not come closer!” Edem made the dressing himself – no one came from the medical staff, not a single nurse.

According to Gulnara Bekirova, on December 21, the daughter managed to send the necessary medications to Edem Bekirov after she “stood in line at the reception window of the detention center from 4 am”.

Reference: The Crimean Tatar activist Edem Bekirov was accused of storing and transporting explosives and ammunition. He is charged with distributing and transporting more than 10 kilograms of TNT and 190 live ammunition.

The Kyiv District Court of Simferopol arrested the Crimean Tatar activist till February 11, 2019. The lawyers, referring to the state of health of Edem Bekirov, asked for a bail. The conditions of detention in the Simferopol facility can significantly worsen his state of health and even be fatal.
