The environment of the Russian opponent Alexei Navalni, who was admitted to a hospital in Omsk in a serious condition, has asked the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) to take a precautionary measure that enables the patient to be transferred to Germany.
ECHR sources have confirmed to Europa Press that this petition has been sent, which aims to “transfer Navalni to Berlin for treatment”. The court is now analyzing the request under Article 39 of the ECHR Rules of Procedure, which regulates precautionary measures.
Doctors have advised against transmission for the time being, considering the severity of the patient. On the other hand, those around him, who have denounced that Navalni has been poisoned, have advocated proceeding as soon as possible with this evacuation, which would be carried out in a plane sent by an NGO.
Navalni’s wife, Julia, sent a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin asking him to facilitate the “immediate” transfer of her husband. Kremlin spokesman Dimitri Peskov has freed the government of possible controversies and assured that the decision, according to the Sputnik agency, will be left to the doctors.
The spokeswoman for Navalni, Kira Yarmish, has confirmed on Twitter that the opponent has at least been examined in the hospital, where he is being held by a team of German doctors. According to these professionals, the transfer would be possible because they have the necessary equipment on board the aircraft.
