EVERYONE RELEASED EXCEPT PROTESTANTS

Four well-known Muslim activists jailed for the exercise of their right to liberty of conscience and religious confession were released in Uzbekistan in February after serving most of their long terms of imprisonment.

Baptist Tokhar Khaydarov remains the only well-known non-Muslim prisoner of conscience jailed for the exercise of his right to liberty of conscience and religious confession. He has been serving a 10-year prison sentence since March 2010 after an alleged drug-related conviction. However his Brothers in faith insisted that the case was a frame-up. The Supreme Court rejected an appeal against the conviction.

On 23 February fellow Baptists from Tashkent told that they had been visiting Tokhar several times in a year and that his physical condition had been fine. In 2014 he had petitioned for pardon but the petition was rejected because of the allegations on the part of the prison administration that Tokhar had violated the prison rules. Nevertheless, the Baptists hope for his release after one half of his prison term in 2016.

Let us remind you of Tokhar’s full address. You may write a letter of invigoration to him:

Tokhar Sariyevich Khaydarov, Unit 13, PO Box 64/49, Shaikh-Ali Village, Karshi Town, Kashkadarya Region 180020, Republic of Uzbekistan.
