Trial of independent journalist continues in Uzbekistan

   

Umida Niyazova, a 32-year-old journalist and single mother with a toddler son, is accused of “illegal border crossing” and “smuggling of subversive literature,”

At today’s hearing she admitted having crossed into Uzbekistan from Kyrgystan with a breach of procedure but categorically denied the other charges.

The freelance journalist who worked for Radio Svoboda and Human Rights Watch could face a ten-year prison sentence.
