SURAN 13/92: Kazakhstan: Yury Anatoliyevich Burlakov
The information on this case comes from an unofficial source, which reports that Yury Burlakov, aged 31 and possibly of ethnic Russian origin, was sentenced to death on 24 August 1991 by the regional court in Aktau (formerly Shevchenko). He had been convicted of murder. The Supreme Court of Kazakhstan upheld the sentence on appeal; Yury Burlakov is now awaiting the outcome of a petition for clemency. AI is calling for the sentence to be commuted.
