OCCRP Supports Novaya Gazeta Reporter’s Appeal to Remain in Russia, Condemns Any Abuse While Detained

The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) expresses deep concern over the possible deportation of Novaya Gazeta reporter Khudoberdi Nurmatov, better known by his pen name Ali Feruz, to Uzbekistan. OCCRP also condemns any abuse against Feruz while he is detained.

Last week, the Moscow City Court ruled for the reporter’s deportation saying he had violated “the rules of entry or stay in the Russian Federation.” Feruz could face torture or even possible death in Uzbekistan.
