Rustem Emiruseinov, a defendant in theso-called Krasnohvardiiske Hizb ut-Tahrir case, has his health deteriorated. The political prisoner has a problem with his teeth, but for 7 months he has not been provided with medical assistance. The Crimean Tatar Resource Center was informed about this by his wife Aliie.

“As for the state of health, the problem with the teeth has not disappeared, but on the contrary is aggravated. During the seven months of his detention in the pre-trial detention center of the city of Rostov-on-Don, until now, he has not been able to get the help of a qualified dentist, despite the fact that it is acute. The upper row of teeth has crumbled completely, but now the problem has spread to the remaining teeth”,- she said.

The wife emphasized that the lack of clean drinking water, lack of sunlight, normal food suitable for consumption, lack of adequate ventilation, walking for one hour a day in a separate closed room, and much more – all this has an extremely negative effect on the health of the political prisoner. In addition to dental problems, Emiruseinov is experiencing constant headaches.

“In the context of the spread of coronavirus infection, the threat to the life and health of our loved ones in the pre-trial detention center is constantly increasing, they are absolutely not protected from contracting this disease”,- she added.

We remind that on February 14, 2019, Russian security forces conducted mass searches in the dwellings of Crimean Tatars in the village of Oktiabr of Krasnohvardiiske district. Three men were detained and taken to the FSB. Criminal proceedings were instituted against them on suspicion of organizing and participating in the activities of the Hizb ut-Tahrir organization banned in the Russian Federation.

On February 15, the so-called Kyiv District Court of Simferopol arrested Eskender Abdulhaniev, Rustem Emiruseinov and Arsen Abkhairov detained after the aforementioned search on suspicion of their participation in the Hizb ut-Tahrir organization, which is banned in Russia.
