Umida Niyazova released!

   

The Uzbek independent journalist Umida Niyazova was released today from prison after the Appeal Court quashed a seven year sentence passed a week ago.

As already reported, she had been convicted of “illegal border crossing”, “smuggling of subversive literature” and provocation using foreign funding.

The sentence elicited outrage throughout the world, with human rights organizations, the EU, US State Department and OSCE condemning the travesty of justice and calling for her immediate release.
