Khayrulla Khamidov

Khayrulla Khamidov, a famous sports commentator and radio talk show host, is sentenced to 6 years in prison on charges of participation in religious organization. He was arrested on January 21, 2010.

We believe that Khamidov’s arrest is politically motivated and can be attributed to official displeasure regarding a radio programme Khamidov hosted in September 2009 during which he made reference to the teachings of the well-known imam Abduvali Mirzoev, who disappeared in 1993.
