POC recognizes Pavel Grib's health state as suitable for SIZO conditions

Pavel Grib does not complain about the conditions of detention at the Rostov SIZO (pre-trial prison), and his health state does not prevent him from being under arrest, reports today the chairman of the Public Observation Commission (POC) for the Rostov Region.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Pavel Grib is accused of inciting his acquaintance, a woman from Kuban, to commit a terror act. On December 21, 2018, the court refused to release him from the SIZO for health reasons.

According to his father, Pavel Grib has a disability and must regularly take medicines. The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) twice, in September and December 2018, demanded from Russia to report on the Pavel Grib's health state. After on October 12, 2018, Ukrainian doctors were not allowed to visit the defendant, Ukraine accused Russia of deliberately harming the health of Pavel Grib. On January 10, the European Union demanded from Russia to release Pavel Grib and stated that he needed specialized medical assistance.

Pavel Grib receives the necessary medicines in due time and does not need urgent hospitalization, reports Leonid Petrashis, the chairman of the Public Observation Commission (POC) for the Rostov Region. According to him, with the written consent of Pavel Grib, the POC requested information about the health state of the defendant and it turned out to be satisfactory. No grounds were found to prevent the Pavel Grib's detention and participation in court hearings, Leonid Petrashis emphasized.
