  1. Uzbekistan said

    In Uzbekistan every body can be jailed. There was recently a program on Russian channel when the anchor asked the nationality of one participant. The participant was from Uzbeistan. The anchor said if you are Uzbek then you must have been to jail other wise you can nt be Uzbek.
    So this was the factual portrayal of Uzbekistan Situation. Can you imagine in January one owner of a Furniture firm MAX MEBEL was murdered. Police detained 70 employees of the company just to investigate for 15 to 30 days.
    I was myself kidnapped on 10th December 2009 and only released on 12th April 2010 and till today do not know the reasons. Because I was never asked a question, never informed of the reasons, never produced in front of any court or prosecutor.
    Read my story and make an opinion about Uzbekistan
