Witness in Andijan Trial Describes Soldiers Shooting Civilians

Testimony contradicts government’s version of events

Legacy PDF:

On May 13, 2005 Uzbek government forces killed hundreds of unarmed protesters as they fled a demonstration in Andijan, in eastern Uzbekistan. To date the government has taken no steps to investigate or hold accountable those responsible for this atrocity. Instead it is denying all responsibility and persecuting those who seek an independent and transparent investigation.
