, Index number: EUR 62/002/2003

The appeal of Iskandar Khudoberganov against his death sentence and the appeals of Bekzod Kasymbekov, Nosirkhon Khakimov and their three co-defendants against their prison sentences were turned down on 28 January 2003 by the Presidium of Tashkent City Court. The men were convicted in November at a trial that grossly violated international human rights standards. They can however, now appeal their sentences at the Supreme Court of Uzbekistan.
