By Amnesty International, , Index number: EUR 62/015/2006

Mutabar Tadzhibaeva, chairwoman of the human rights organization Fiery Hearts Club, was sentenced to eight years' imprisonment in March 2006. She faced 13 charges, including "membership of an illegal organization" and "using funds from Western governments to prepare or distribute materials containing a threat to public order and security". Amnesty International considers Mutabar Tadzhibaeva to be a prisoner of conscience, detained solely for carrying out her human rights work.
