By Amnesty International, , Index number: EUR 62/006/2007

Iskandar Khudaiberganov, held on death row in Tashkent prison, Uzbekistan since November 2002, was diagnosed with tuberculosis (TB) in 2004. At no stage has he received adequate medical treatment for the disease. As Uzbekistan moves to put into effect a new law replacing the death penalty with life long imprisonment, there is no clarity as to how individual cases will be reviewed, and some relatives expressed concerns that prisoners may be transferred to other prisons where conditions may be harsher and access to necessary medical treatment also denied.
