Spain: Torture risk for dissident if extradited
Aleksandr Pavlov, 37, is detained in the Spanish capital, Madrid. The Spanish authorities are considering extraditing him to Kazakhstan. Amnesty International believes that he must not be extradited or transferred to Kazakhstan, as there he would be at a real risk of torture or other ill-treatment, and unfair trial, due to his links with the Kazakhstani opposition leader Mukhtar Ablyazov.
