First Deputy Chairman of Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People Nariman Dzhelialov, who is accused of committing sabotage, was placed in the department of the Balaban Crimean Republican Psychiatric Hospital 1 for examination. Lawyer Nikolai Polozov announced this via his Facebook page.

We remind you that on September 3-4 in the occupied Crimea, in the houses of the Crimean Tatars Eldar Odamanov, Aziz Akhtemov, Shevket Useinov, Asan Akhtemov and Nariman Dzhelialov the searches were conducted. The security forces confiscated the equipment and took the men with them.

On September 4, Russian security officials in the occupied Crimea detained more than 40 people who wanted to know about the fate of five Crimean Tatars. They were fined 30,000 rubles.

Later it became known that Nariman Dzhelialov and cousins Aziz and Asan Akhtemov were suspected of complicity in the sabotage. The occupants claim that they are involved in the damage to the gas pipeline in the village of Perevalnoe, Simferopol district of Crimea.

Eldar Odamanov and Shevket Useinov were released after the search, but later they were detained again and an administrative protocol was drawn up. A Russian court in Crimea arrested Shevket Useinov and Eldar Odamanov for 14 and 15 days under Article 19.3 of the Administrative Code of Russia (disobedience to the police).

On September 6, the so-called Russian court in the occupied Crimea arrested the first deputy Chairman of Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Nariman Dzhelialov, as well as the brothers Aziz and Asan Akhtemov for 2 months - until November 4, 2021.
