UZBEKISTAN: TORTURE AND DEATH THREATS UNPUNISHED

 

Urgench Police Officer Ravshan Sobirov who tortured Jehovah's Witness Anvar

Tajiyev and issued death threats in October 2017 denied this to Forum 18.

Tajiyev lost hearing in one ear and still suffers headaches. His many

complaints to the President, national and local Prosecutor's Offices have

led to no prosecutions.

 

UZBEKISTAN: TORTURE AND DEATH THREATS UNPUNISHED

By Mushfig Bayram, Forum 18

 

In a test of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev's newly-professed intent to ban

torture and punish the perpetrators, Jehovah's Witness Anvar Tajiyev has

been seeking redress since October 2017 for torture inflicted on him by

police in Urgench in Khorezm Region.

 

More than six months after the police torture, Tajiyev still suffers

headaches and has lost hearing in one ear.

 

But his complaints to many state agencies - including to the President -

have ended back with Urgench City Prosecutor's Office, which wrote on 3

March: "We found that the Police Officers' actions were not unlawful."
