TAKE ACTION Call on the authorities to stop the unlawful detention and ill treatment of three Uzbek women human rights defenders who are currently imprisoned; Mutabar Tadjibaeva, Gulbahor Turayeva and Umida Niyazova.

I am writing to express my grave concern about the continued detention of Mutabar Tadjibaeva, Gulbahor Turayeva and Umida Niyazova. I urge you to release Mutabar Tadjibaeva Gulbahor Turayeva and Umida Niyazova immediately and unconditionally, as it is clear that these sentences constitute an attempt by the Uzbek authorities to prevent these women from carrying out their activities in defence of human rights.
I call on the authorities to ensure that Mutabar Tadjibaeva, Gulbahor Turayeva and Umida Niyazova and all human rights defenders detained in Uzbekistan are given regular access to family, lawyers, and medical attention if required while in detention.
