Ak-Mukhammed VELSAPAR, Khudayberdi KHALLI, Nurberdi NURMAMEDOV and Klych
YARMAMMEDOV (previously given wrongly as Yarmammed Klych), who were placed
under house arrest on 24-25 October 1992, were all released by 1 November.
Amnesty International has learned that Yusup KADYROV, Aman GURSHAYEV, Tuvak
TAKHATOV and Akbabek ATAYEV, also members of the opposition Agzybirlik movement,
were similarly placed under house arrest on 24-25 October, and were also released
by 1 November.
Amnesty International believes that the arrest of these eight people was in
direct violation of their fundamental human right to freedom of association.
