We have had some concerns about human rights in Uzbekistan, but we are concerned about the outbreak of violence, particularly by some members of a terrorist organization that were freed from prison. And we urge both the government and the demonstrators to exercise restraint at this time. The people of Uzbekistan want to see more representative and democratic government, but that should come through peaceful means, not through violence. And that's what our message is.

Overview: Uzbekistan

The lack of any obvious pattern of succession opened up the possibility of a possible coup d’état in Uzbekistan as the President’s faithful coterie of advisors and supporters appeared to be doing their best to undermine the chances of the President’s glamorous, but unpopular, daughter Gulnara over who was going to take over the reins of state.....Gulnara’s activities did little to enhance Uzbekistan’s wobbly record on human rights. In its summary assessment of the state of affairs in Uzbekistan the US based Human Rights watch (HRW) reported that:’ Uzbekistan’s human rights record is atrocious. Torture is endemic in the criminal justice system. Authorities intensified their crackdown on civil society activists, opposition members, and journalists. Muslims and Christians who practice their religion outside strict state controls are persecuted, and freedom of expression is severely limited.'
