April 12, 2023

Dilyaver Gafarov, accused of involvement in the Noman Çelebicihan Crimean Tatar Volunteer Battalion was put in a punishment cell in Stavropol. It is reported by the Crimean solidarity.

“Now he is on the territory of the Russian Federation in correctional colony 1 of the Stavropol Territory, the village of Kochubeevskoye, and spent almost half of the appointed term”,- said the wife of the political prisoner, Diliara Gafarova.

On April 4, Gafarov contacted her via the Zonatelecom prison connection and said that he was being transferred to the Detention chamber for five days. Later, his cellmate reported that Gafarov’s sentence had been extended for another 10 days. The reason for moving the political prisoner to the Detention chamber is unknown.

In addition, it is known that Detention chambers do not have the opportunity to observe the Muslim fast for the month of Ramadan: it is forbidden to eat and sleep outside the approved routine.

“They said that because of some checks. It is unfair to keep a fasting person in detention chamber,- commented the political prisoner’s wife.

We remind you that on October 30, 2018, Russian security forces came with a search to the house of Dilyaver Gafarov in the village of Zhemchuzhyna, Crimea, Kirovs District.
