Zarema Musaeva denied release from colony

A court in Shali has rejected the defence's motion to release Zarema Musaeva from the colony settlement for her health reasons. The judge took into account the arguments of the medical commission that Musaeva's health allows her to continue serving her sentence, her advocate, Alexander Savin, has informed.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on April 19, 2024, it became known that the medical commission, whose opinion is necessary for the court hearing on Musaeva's release, came to the conclusion that she has no diseases that would dictate her release from colony for health reasons.

Her initial diagnosis, made in August 2023, indicated diabetes with multiple complications. However, in the final protocol the diagnosis was changed to diabetes without complications. Such a disease is not in the list of diseases that prescribe to release convicts from custody for health reasons, the advocate has explained.

According to Alexander Savin, the court's denial was no surprise to him and Musaeva, the Telegram channel of the "Teams against Torture" (TaT)* has reported.

Let us recall that on May 3, Musaeva's advocate sent a complaint to the Chechen Public Prosecutor, in which he stated that she had been denied treatment for several months, despite the obvious deterioration of her health condition. On May 15, it became known that Zarema was undergoing her treatment at a daytime hospital.

Earlier, on March 28, the advocate reported that Musaeva's vision had sharply deteriorated and she began suffering from severe pains. Her health worsening was another reason for her conditional early relief (CER), human rights defenders then indicated.

*The "Team against Torture" (TaT, formerly the "Committee against Torture" – CaT) was created by the lawyers who had earlier worked for the CaT, which was included into the register of the NCOs performing the functions of foreign agents.
