    Free 18 Men Tortured, Sentenced in Unfair Trial

    The Norwegian Helsinki Committee joins protests in reaction to credible reports of the arrest, torture, and conviction following unfair trials, and imprisonment under inhumane conditions of 18 men in Turkmenistan. The sentences, from 12 to 25 years, were handed down in a closed, two-hour trial, and set out in a summary of the verdict that lacks any information about the specific acts the men are accused of committing or the evidence against them.

    Stans overgrepene i Tsjetsjenia

    Nyheten om systematiske arrestasjoner, tortur og drap på antatt homofile menn i Tsjetsjenia kom første april, og rystet en hel verden. Den norske Helsingforskomité, Foreningen FRI og Amnesty International Norge ber i dagens VG russiske myndigheter om umiddelbart å iverksette tiltak for å stoppe overgrepene og trusler mot journalistene som har fortalt mennenes historier.

  • Azerbaijani journalist abducted from Georgia

    Letter to the Prime Minister of Georgia:

    Azerbaijani journalist abducted from Georgia

    In a letter to the Prime Minsiter of Georgia, NHC has joined several human rights organisations to express our concern about the abduction of Afgan Mukhtarli, an exiled Azerbaijani journalist, on 29 May in Tbilisi. He went missing after leaving his colleagues in the evening, before resurfacing the following day in Baku in the custody of Azerbaijan’s state border agency. Mukhtarli reports that he was forced into a car near his home, tied up and beaten. His abductors put a bag over his head and 10,000 euros were stuffed into his pockets while crossing the Azerbaijani border. We question the role of Georgia in letting this abduction take place.
