Eva Kaili was subject to “torture reminiscent of the Middle Ages” her Greek lawyer said on Thursday afternoon, following the hearing before the Judicial council in Brussels that will decide whether she remains in pre-trial custody or be remporary released with an ankle bracelet.
“Mrs. Kaili remained for 6 hours in solitary confinement, with the conditions of her detention being miserable,” her lawyer Michalis Dimitrakopoulos told reporters.
She was deprived of her jacket and she was freezing, she did not get a warm blanket, and the lights are kept on 16 hours a day so she can’t sleep. Furthermore, “she said she was not allowed to wash despite being unwell and losing a lot of blood,” Italian daily La Stampa reported citing Kaili’s lawyer.
She also complained that she could not see her 22-month-old daughter alone and that she was allowed to see her once a month only.
Lawyer Dimitrakopoulos spoke of “violations of human rights” and “torture reminiscent of the Middle Ages”
