Oppositionist about staying in a mental hospital

Baku/02.04.20/Turan: On March 1, activist of the Popular Front Party, Agil Humbatov, who was imprisoned on March 1 at the No. 1 Psychiatric Hospital in the village of Mashtaga, was released on April 1.

In his video message on Facebook, he said that he was forced into a psychiatric hospital by a court decision.

“I was detained by people in civilian clothes and taken to the police. An ambulance was called there, which, along with the police, drove me to the hospital. The psychiatric hospital did not want to take, because I had a fever. However, the police insisted,” says Humbatov.

He was placed in the infectious diseases ward, given medications, after which the temperature dropped. At the same time, doctors noted his lack of mental illness.

However, Humbatov was placed in the same room with the mentally ill. The latter was in a dirty state and aggressive. “I redeemed him, after which he calmed down and fell asleep.” The activist claims that in the hospital unsanitary conditions and patients are given terribly poor-quality food.

Humbatov said that the reason for his imprisonment in the hospital was a court decision that said that he allegedly took off his pants in a public place.

“That’s bullshit. They cannot even slander a person normally,” Humbatov said.

On April 1, a judge of the Sabunchu court suddenly appeared in the hospital presented a new decision on his release.

Humbatov was detained after his March 29 video appeal to the country’s leadership complaining about the lack of funds to treat a sick child. –06D-
