Uzbeckistan Prison Torture

The MWL condemns all forms of torture and violation of human rights being practiced in Uzbeckistan prisons and worldwide. The Humans Rights Watch group has documented at least 17 deaths of prisoners since December of 2000. An example of a recent case was Otamaza Gafarov who died in prison on May 3 with noted bruises on body. Approximately 7700 individuals have been imprisoned for their political and/or religious beliefs. Unfortunately, this is not an isolated practice  - many countries around the world engage in imprisonment of individuals because of their beliefs/political ideation and ultimately become victims of torture in the prisons. We call on the international community to help in the struggle to end the human rights abuses worldwide. May God help us all in this struggle.
