April 6, 2023

The guardian of political prisoner Amet Suleymanov, Antonio Stango, demands the release of a Crimean Tatar who was sentenced to 12 years in a strict regime colony, despite his grave state of health.

Antonio Stango notes that the decision of a Russian court in the occupied Crimea to transfer Crimean Tatar journalist Amet Suleymanov from house arrest to a pre-trial detention center could mean a de facto death sentence for a person with a severe heart disease.

“The Italian Federation for Human Rights continues to follow his case and calls for his release and the release of all other Kremlin prisoners who have been subjected to political persecution since the occupation of Crimea in March 2014”,- he added.

We are sincerely grateful to our partners and colleagues in the person of Antonio Stango for the systematic and unwavering support of the Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar peoples, as well as for the struggle for the release of all political prisoners of Crimea.
