Turkmenistan: Victims need justice now! A compilation of cases
In this document Amnesty International calls on the newly elected President to take immediate steps to reverse Turkmenistan's dire record of torture, imprisonment and forced exile. All prisoners of conscience should be released and harassment of the families of exiled dissidents should cease. Political prisoners sentenced to lengthy prison terms after unfair trials should be freed unless they are to be retried fairly. Priority should be given to establishing investigations into allegations of torture and ill-treatment and all deaths in custody. Prisoners must have immediate access to medical care and treatment.
