Today the decision of the Kiev court of Poltava to which it is refused satisfaction of the statement of the management of the Poltava regional psychiatric hospital about compulsory hospitalization of the Poltava pensioner in "mental hospital" came into force.
The lonely old man force, by means of militia, delivered in psychiatric hospital after his neighbors declared to the local militia inspector that the pensioner is deranged and threatens to undermine the house. In hospital 71 - the summer pensioner accepted as the Poltava human rights activists now claim, even without primary survey by the district doctor - the psychiatrist and in defiance of Art. 11 of the Law of Ukraine "About the psychiatric help".
Itself "deranged" as it appeared, repeatedly I addressed in militia with complaints to neighbors which allegedly drive moonshine, from - for what at an entrance there was nothing to breathe. The right guardians didn't hurry to react to its complaints, and here neighbors reacted quickly. The pensioner didn't consider himself mentally sick and to hospitalization didn't agree, considering that his ill-wishers want to take control of his apartment. But, nevertheless, it appeared in psychiatric hospital.
Court session took place two days behind closed doors. In court public defenders from labor union "Solidarity" proved that results of survey of the pensioner were forged and that "psikhichno the patient" is completely adequate person. The court agreed with arguments of protection and refused a request of the management of the Poltava regional psychiatric hospital for compulsory hospitalization of the pensioner. "Mentally unbalanced" released directly in a court hall. However, before it the old man nevertheless stayed in "mental hospital" seven days.
In the comment for "Regional committee" one of deputy chief physicians of regional psychiatric hospital I expressed a regret that this history gets the raised public response. Anything special and illegal, according to the medic, in it isn't present. And refusal of court to place on compulsory treatment of the pensioner, consider in hospital normal the decision: the court disagreed with opinion of experts and, thus, assumed responsibility for actions of the pensioner.
Now human rights activists of unaccomplished "loony" intend to achieve accountability of the persons guilty of attempt of the compulsory placement on treatment in hospital of the pensioner, seeing in their actions unsafe precedent.
