Uzbek Authorities Seize Properties Of Ex-citizens And Those in Prisons

Posted by Info on 23/02/2011

Uzbekistan is not only imprisoning former Uzbek citizens who have given up their citizenship, but is also seizing their properties in the country. One of them is Yuriy Korepanov, a retired colonel of the Soviet army, who has been sentenced to 16 years in prison for “treason”.

Uzbek citizens who were living in Russia now had complained that their properties in Uzbekistan had been seized when authorities found out that they had become citizens of other countries.
For Exmpale Yelena Levenchik won a court case, bailiffs ignored the court ruling in her favour. Moreover, she was adviced better to go back to Russia.

The activist said her organisation had received many complaints about similar cases from people who moved to Russia and Ukraine and from political émigrés.
