Arrested member of the Contact Group on Human Rights Emir-Usein Kuku was sent to a psychiatric hospital to undergo an “examination” in Crimea.
This was reported by Kuku’s lawyer Emil Kurbedinov.
“Today Human rights activist Emir-Usein Kuku has been submitted to forced psychiatry. The Court is going to prolong his detention today,” said the lawyer.
Earlier the six Crimean Muslims detained in the so-called “case of Hizb ut-Tahrir” were submitted to a forced psychiatric examination too.
As a reminder, Russian security forces conducted a series of searches and arrests in the homes of adherents of Islam in Crimea on February 11 and 12 this year. Totally 14 people were detained, 4 of them were then arrested: Emir-Usein Kuku, Enver Bekirov, Muslim Aliev and Vadim Siruk. The FSB investigators accused them of involvement in Hizb ut-Tahrir banned in Russia.
