sorry here's the extract from that Wiki page. " This included the case of Karimov's security forces executing prisoners Muzafar Avazov and Khuzniddin Alimov by boiling them alive in 2002. Murray became noted within the British government for memos disagreeing with official UK & US policy, which was at the time to back up Karimov as part of the global war on terror. Uzbekistan was used for extraordinary rendition and for the air base in Karshi-Khanabad. Murray wrote a memoir about his experiences; Murder in Samarkand, retitled Dirty Diplomacy in the United States."
I was somewhat incredulous when I read about this in the last 2 months. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_Karimov " In particular, Craig Murray, the British Ambassador from 2002 to 2004, described widespread torture, kidnapping, murder, rape by the police, financial corruption, religious persecution, censorship, and other human rights abuses. Craig Murray. Murder in Samarkand, 2006, [ISBN 978-1845961947], and Dirty Diplomacy, 2007, [ISBN 978-1416548027], Scribner http://www.amazon.com/Murder-Samarkand-Ambassadors-Controversial-Defiance/dp/1845961943 As you say, his best chance of survival is through the Uzbek government leveraging a weak negotiated settlement with Said's life a bargaining chip that is in play. If Oxus play hard ball then his chances seem bleak. Frankly ;l'm glad that I'm not in Mr Shead's. shoes.
Come on where did you read that? I know of stone To death,firing squad Elec chair etc but tbh would not surprise me,if a deal for said is done then its an inesent life saved A few years ago I was in a job that's puts a price on a life! Cut a long story short,if a safety devise was put on somthink how much would it cost£££££££ millions To do it to every item and if it's not on and a person does it would cost only around £100k and worked it put that only 4 ish life's lost per 10 years so cheaper not to do it!!! Motto is there is a price for life!, Life is not priceless
I hope you are right and foreigners may have some reputational leverage. But this is regime that is the last 10 years has sentenced people to death by being boiled alive. ( not in medieval times, but recent times) Normal rules don 't seem to apply in the wild wild east.
They must presumably have been holding him as a bargaining chip to reduce any early settlement. However, the fact he is seriously ill and may die in custody would surely create lots of bad publicity and be detrimental to their cause? On the back of that, could we see him released or else a more hastily concocted (and slightly more favourable) early settlement?
As I said before I'm baffled why he is not buying more to lower his/sp price Over the last couple weeks it only look like sells going through and on idsx the buys there Very odd is Oxs being seriously shorted or what
