In November 2003 AI launched a series of actions including this web action to draw attention to the findings of AI's report 'Justice only in Heaven' - the death penalty in Uzbekistan and to urge the Uzbek authorities to end the death penalty in their country. Since the launch of the action there have been a number of positive developments. The death sentences of two of the men featured in this action - Evgeny Gugnin and Abror Isaev - have been commuted to imprisonment and the authorities have given assurances that Iskander Khudoberganov and Nodirbek Karimov will not be executed while their cases are under consideration by the United Nations Human Rights Committee (UNHRC).
