** Mirkadyrov was arrested in April 2014, immediately after the deportation from Turkey. He categorically rejects the accusation of treason. The real reason for his arrest, according to his colleagues, journalists and human rights activists, was Mirkadyrov’s participation in projects of the Institute of Peace and Democracy headed by Leyla Yunus, who is also accused of treason.

It is noteworthy that the prosecution of Yunus and her husband Arif Yunus on treason was separated from other charges and they were convicted for economic crimes. -16B06-
