Uzbekistan must cease all pressure, including intimidation and threats, against the family members of Kadyr Yusupov – a  former Uzbek diplomat currently being tried on dubious charges of treason, the Association for Human Rights in Central Asia (AHRCA), Fair Trials International, Freedom Now, International Partnership for Human Rights (IPHR) and the Norwegian Helsinki Committee (NHC), said in a press release today. The groups also called on the authorities in Uzbekistan to guarantee that all international fair trial standards are met in relation to the ongoing trial of Yusupov, and to ensure the safety of his family members, including his son Temur Yusupov, who reports ongoing harassment from the security services.
