Amnesty: France - Stop extradition threatening Kazakhstani dissident with torture © mukhtarablyazov.org
Amnesty calls on the authorities of France in Ablyazov case."The French government must not allow the extradition of Kazakhstani banker and opposition figure Mukhtar Ablyazov" - said Amnesty International after a French court decision that Ablyazov should be sent to Rusian or Ukraine.
“Today's decision by the French court flies in the face of the realities on the ground. Russian and Ukrainian security services collaborate routinely with the security apparatus in Kazakhstan,” added Julia Hall, Amnesty International’s expert on counter-terrorism and human rights. This collaboration Amnesty also noted in report Returns to Torture: Extradition, Forcible Returns and Removals to Central Asia.
