Lawyer Rustem Kiamilev says his defendant in the second Simferopol Hizbut-Tahrir Case Eskender Suleymanov has been kept with a tuberculosis cellmate for more than two months.

‘Eskender Suleymanov told me he had been kept with a TB cellmate for two months, as it was found out later’, the lawyer informed.

Kiamilev added that Eskender Suleymanov had several times asked the medical facility to send all his cellmates to X-ray examination. The administration of the temporary detention centre, however, has taken no actions so far.
