As Manchester United prepare to face Barcelona in the Champions League Final, here are two aspects of the Barca colours.
Thierry Henry in Barca Colours
Muzaffar Avazov in Barca colours
Muzaffar Avazov is one of two dissidents who were boiled alive by the Uzbek dictator Islam Karimov. I investigated the case as British Ambassador with the assistance of the now chief pathologist of the UK. There is no doubt that death was caused by immersion in boiling liquid, while Avazov was a prisoner in Karimov’s notorious Jaslyk gulag. Karimov has over 10,000 political prisoners.
Uzbekistan is perhaps the most brutal dictaotrship in the world, but Barcelona receive $10 million a year to promote the Karimov regime and the propaganda “Show club” owned by the President’s daughter.
Anyone supporting Barcelona next week is supporting fascism.
