Iskandar Khudaiberganov, held on death row in Tashkent prison, Uzbekistan, was diagnosed with tuberculosis (TB) in 2004 and reportedly is receiving inadequate treatment. Amnesty International is concerned for the health of Iskandar Khudaiberganov, fellow inmates and prison staff at risk of tuberculosis, and calls for appropriate medical treatment and improved prison conditions. Furthermore, Amnesty International urges for Iskandar Khudaiberganov's death sentence to be commuted, as well as sentences of all other death row inmates.
