Uzbekistan: Fast-track to torture: Abductions and forcible returns from Russia to Uzbekistan
The Uzbekistani authorities have relentlessly pursued the extradition or otherwise involuntary return from Russia of hundreds of people they suspect of criminal activity or whom they label as opponents or threats to national security. Where extradition has been denied or obstructed, Uzbekistani security forces have abducted asylum-seekers from Russia. This briefing shows that torture continues to be pervasive in Uzbekistani prisons and detention centres as a means to obtain forced confessions, punish prisoners and their families, and to incriminate others and extort money.
