Uzbekistan: Tashkent’s Yakkasaray district court today heard the first torture case brought against the Interior Ministry’s main prison directorate and the administration of prison No 49 in Kashkadarya Region and acquitted the suspects.

The charges were brought by resident of Tashkent Irina Badrinova after she learnt about the ill-treatment of her son in prison No 49.The trial was conducted formally, Judge Nilyufar Usmanova heard the case quickly.”

The plaintiff hoped that the judge would take her case seriously and open a criminal case against those guilty, but Judge Usmanova showed complete indifference to the fate of her son, Suhrob.
She also complained that the judge had made jokes about her because she lacked the knowledge of laws and could not afford a lawyer.
