May 2, 2023

Teymur Abdullaev was taken out of the punishment cell in Salavat due to a doctor’s recommendation. It is reported by the Crimean Solidarity.

“On April 19, they were expelled to the Detention chamber for 10 days for a violation – allegedly my son hung a bed with a towel, but we all understand that this is pressure on Muslims, and a towel is not a curtain, they all dry towels there. Whom you need to put pressure on, this violation is used”,- the mother said.

Abdullaev’s mother, Diliara Abdullaeva, sent complaints to various authorities: to the President of the Russian Federation to investigate the case of Uzeir and Teymur Abdullaev, local authorities in Bashkortostan and the human rights department in Ufa. The woman asked for urgent medical assistance to the political prisoner.

“The doctor examined him and said that he feared for his health, so detention chamber is contraindicated for him and, on his recommendation, Uzeyir was taken out”,- said Abdullaev’s wife, Fera.

It is known about the poor living conditions in the Detention chamber: during the day the sleeping place is removed there and you can only either sit on a stool or stand on your feet.

“My husband has constant swelling on his foot, he can’t stand for a long time – the pain is getting worse. The cause of the edema has not yet been established”,- Fera added.

We remind you that on October 12, 2016, the Russian security forces as a result of mass searches in the village. Strohonivka, Simferopol district, detained five representatives of the indigenous Crimean Tatar people – Uzeir Abdullaev, Teymur Abdullaev, Rustem Ismailov, Emil Dzhemadenov and Ayder Saledinov. They were accused of participating in the Hizb ut-Tahrir organization banned on the territory of the Russian Federation and charged with article 205.5 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (organization of the activities of a terrorist organization and participation in it).

On June 18, 2019, the North Caucasian District Military Court of the Russian Federation announced sentences on the defendants in the Simferopol Hizb ut-Tahrir case. Teymur Abdullaev was sentenced to 17 years in a strict regime colony with restriction of freedom for a period of 1 year and 6 months, Rustem Ismailov – to 14 years, Uzeir Abdullaev – to 13 years, Ayder Saledinov and Emil Dzhemadenov – to 12 years.
