24 Hours To Save The Malyshevs 64


Mikel and Nina Malyshev’s family have been told by the UK Border Agency that they have been moved from Yarls Wood to an undisclosed location before deportation to Uzbekistan tomorrow. The UK government continues to refuse to acknowledge the terrible human rights situation in Uzbekistan in general, or the fate that awaits the Malyshevs in particular. No reply has to date been received to a fax to the European Court of Human Rights asking for a suspension.

Please take action – contact your MP, and contact William Hague and Teresa May. The UK government cannot be allowed to continue to pretend that it does not know about the human rights situation in Uzbekistan.

Please repost this and my appeal yesterday on any website on which you can.

UPDATE

Could someone kindly give Amnesty International a call and see if they will urgently contact the British government on this one? They have run cases recently against Uzbeks being deported back from the Ukraine and from Kazakhstan. I have to dash to a meeting on another asylum case.

    no contact with nina&mickel they were picked up by people unknown PLEASE help trace them AS THE UK said they would be safe

  • Uzbek in the UK

    Whatever UK said is now irrelevant as Malyshevs are now under ‘rightful protection’ of the Uzbek authorities as all other Uzbek citizens who live in Uzbekistan. UK is not going to intervene as by sending them back they (UK authorities) demonstrated that they do not care of Human Rights of this particular couple.

    When have Malyshevs called from Tashkent? Have they managed to pass border control in Tashkent safely or have they called before that? Do they have any family members there in Uzbekistan?

    Have they tried Russian Embassy in London? As being Russian by ethnicity they at least can try to ask Russian Embassy in Tashkent for some assistance. Although not Russian citizens but Russia takes it painfully when Russians of Uzbekistan are being prosecuted and particularly those days when Karimov turning his back to Russia.

    Nina phoned from Tashkent relieved that the British Consulate had met them at the airport & guided them through a side entrance, we haven’t heard from them since. We have checked with British Embassy in Uzbekistan & they told us that they did not meet Nina & Mikel. We have not heard from them since.

  • Uzbek in the UK

    People do disappear in Uzbekistan but this does not seem to me that Malyshevs have been kidnapped. Although, Malyshevs’ case was made public and this I am sure angered Uzbek authorities but kidnapping Malyshevs like this would be an act of extreme stupidity even for such ruthless government like in Uzbekistan. Is there any way to press for British Embassy to find out what happen to Malyshevs? UKBA in collaboration with British Justice system were so sure that sending them back to Uzbekistan will not breach Human Rights so can now British Embassy take their assess from chairs and do something to prove their government right?
