The elders of Crimea made an appeal to the people, expressing their support for the elderly political prisoners of Crimea – Servet Gaziev and Dzhemil Gafarov, whom the occupiers requested huge terms of imprisonment.

Recall that according to the Crimean Tatar Resource Center, today the FSB dungeons contain:

Gaziev Servet – 62 years old

Gafarov Dzhemil – 60 years old

Dovhopola Halyna – 66 years old

Omerov Enver – 61 years old

Prykhodko Oleh – 64 years old

Muratov Zekirya – 65 years old

Enver Omerov, Zekirya Muratov, Halyna Dovhopola and Oleh Prikhodko have already been sentenced to 18 to 5 years in prison, while Servet Gaziev and Dzhemil Gafarov face 13 to 13.5 years in prison.

The CTRC emphasizes that, given the age of these political prisoners, such terms can be fatal for them. In addition, it is necessary to take into account the fact that each of the political prisoners has severe and chronic diseases, which are especially manifested due to inadequate conditions in pre-trial detention centers and prisons, systematic ignorance of complaints by law enforcement agencies, as well as inadequate and untimely medical care.

According to the Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners, they are all entitled to regular medical care, which of course they do not receive. And huge terms in colonies and prisons for elderly people with health problems are a separate form of torture.

The CTRC demands that the Russian Federation immediately release all of the above persons and other political prisoners of the Kremlin, as well as stop systematically violating human rights in the occupied Crimea.
