Turkmenistan: Ogulsapar Muradova: [Global letter-writing marathon 2006]
On 14 September, officers from the Ministry of National Security of Turkmenistan informed the relatives of Ogulsapar Muradova, a former Turkmenistan Helsinki Foundation (THF) member and a correspondent for the US-funded Radio Liberty that she had died in custody. Ogulsapar Muradova was sentenced along with Annakurban Amanklychev and Sapardurdy Khadzhiev to terms of imprisonment in an unfair trial on 25 August 2006. There are strong indications that the charges brought against them were fabricated to punish them for their human rights activities.
