Amnesty in defence of Paraskevich
On 21 October, 2013, the human rights organisation Amnesty International made an appeal in defence of Tatiana Paraskevich.
In their official statement addressed to the international community, Amnesty International called on the government of the Czech Republic to block the extradition of Paraskevich.
In the statement, Amnesty International warned:
“If forcibly returned to Ukraine or the Russian Federation, she will likely be transferred to Kazakhstan and be placed at risk of torture and other ill-treatment, and unfair trial due to her links with Kazakhstani opposition figure, Mukhtar Ablyazov” [http://www.amnestyusa.org/sites/default/files/uaa29513.pdf].
Previously, an official statement on the case of Tatiana Paraskevich had also been issued by Amnesty International of the Czech Republic and the Czech Helsinki Committee.
