The health condition of Crimean citizen Emir-Usein Kuku, who is contained in prison of Simferopol for nearly a year, got worth. This was reported to the Crimean human rights group by the defender’s wife Meryem Kuku.

“He (Emir Usein Kuku – Ed.) looks good, but health is getting worth, the tooth is broken, the another tooth is inflamed to a large flux, the knee is inflamed,” – said Meryem Kuku. Meryem said that her husband is not provided with the necessary medical care in pre-detention centre. He was given only those medications that were given by her.

“He told me about the constant supervision of riot police or paramedics in the” loony bin”, in addition to the cameras, they look in the windows in the toilet and in the shower,” – Meryem reported to CHRG.
