The EU calls on Kyrgyzstan to clarify the circumstances surrounding the death of the activist Azimyan Asjarov in prison

The European Union asked the Kyrgyz authorities on Monday to clarify the circumstances surrounding the death of Saturday night human rights defender Azimyan Asjarov in prison and the conditions under which he spent his last months in prison.

“We very much regret that Mr. Asjarov died in prison despite the request for his release on humanitarian grounds,” said the European External Action Service, headed by Josep Borrell, in a statement.

“It is important to clarify the circumstances of his death and the conditions under which he has been detained in the final months of his life,” added the community block message.

The European Union has always denounced the conditions under which the activist was brought to justice after his arrest in 2010, in line with the views of the United Nations, and has repeatedly called for his release.
