Tajikistan: Fear of imminent execution/ death penalty/fear for safety/ harsh prison conditions: Dilfuza Numonova
Dilfuza Numonova is believed to be in danger of imminent execution. She was sentenced to death by Dushanbe City Court in January, at a reportedly unfair trial, for the November 1999 shooting of her lover, Kamil Kurbanov. On 14 March the Supreme Court upheld the death sentence. Her only hope of escaping execution is clemency from the President, who has the power to commute death sentences when all other appeals have been exhausted.
