Kazakstan: Fear of forcible return/"disappearance"

, Index number: EUR 57/003/2005

On 24 and 27 November, ten male Uzbekistani citizens - Abdurahman Ibragimov, Tohir Abdusamatov, Farhod Islamov (m), Sharofuddin Latipov, Nozim Rahmanov, Shoirmat Shorahmedov, Alisher Mirzaholov, Abdurauf Holmuratov, Ruhiddin Fahruddinov, and Alizhon Mirganiev - were allegedly arrested by the Kazakstan National Security Committee (KNSC) in Kazakstan and are being held in incommunicado detention. Amnesty International believes that they are in serious danger of being forcibly returned to Uzbekistan, where they would be at risk of incommunicado detention, torture and unfair trial leading to a long prison term or even the death penalty.
