Russian Federation: Supreme Court cancels deportation order for Ali Feruz

, Index number: EUR 46/7791/2018

On 24 January 2018, the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation upheld the appeal of Novaya Gazeta journalist and Amnesty International activist Ali Feruz and overturned the 2017 decision by a lower court to deport him to Uzbekistan. The Court sent the case for further consideration to Moscow City Court. While Amnesty International welcomes this decision, it continues to urge the Russian authorities to immediately release Ali Feruz and ensure he will not be deported to a country where he would be at real risk of torture.
