Petition Regarding Andijan Events Addressed To UN And European Parliament

Posted by Info on 17/05/2010

Uzbek exiles commemorated the victims of the Andijan killings on 13 May 2005, started their rally at 1000 outside the Swedish parliament, and moved to the UN office in Sweden, attracting local Swedes’ attention to their cause.

Many Swedes signed a petition addressed to the UN and the European Parliament that they should demand an international probe into the Andijan events and the release of political prisoners in Uzbekistan. Azeris and Uighurs also joined the rally.

People who suffered from the Andijan events living in Sweden and other European countries refused to take part for reasons known only to them.
