, Index number: EUR 61/006/2006

Kakabay Tedzhenov is believed to have been forcibly confined in incommunicado detention in a psychiatric hospital since January 2006. The 69-year old dissident was targeted solely to punish him for exercising his right to freedom of expression, in particular, for protesting government policies. Amnesty International regards him as a prisoner of conscience and is calling for his prompt and unconditional release.
