“Arsen has been complaining about constant headaches for several months already. I’m worried about his life and health. His current condition can lead to a stroke or a heart attack. In the application I’m requesting that he be taken to one of the city hospitals where he can be provided with qualified assistance. “He won’t receive this assistance in the the pre-trial detention center,” said Azamatov.
Earlier the lawyer posted on Facebook that Arsen Jepparov was in a “critical condition”. At the end of May, the North Caucasian District Military Court extended the detention of the Yalta “Hizb ut-Tahrir case´s” six defendants for three months.
