08/15/2011 Update

On March 9, 2010, a criminal court in Uzbekistan sentenced 27-year-old Tohar Haydarov to 10 years in prison for the “illegal sale of narcotic or psychotropic substances in large quantities.” Members of the Baptist church in Uzbekistan insist that the charges are fabricated and that Haydarov’s sentence was punishment for his religious activity. It is unclear why Haydarov received a 10-year sentence.

According to Forum 18 News, Baptists insist that police planted drugs on Haydarov, and church members insist that he is “a man with a pure conscience and an honest Christian.” Haydarov’s appeal was denied.

Parole Will Not Happen – April 2016

Prison authorities in Uzbekistan have told Tohar Haydarov that a mid-2016 parole from his 10-year sentence “will not happen.” Officials offered no further explanation about why the Christian, who has served more than six years of his sentence, is not eligible for parole. Tohar told fellow church members during a January visit that he continues to “feel like God is next to him in prison.” He also knows many people from around the world write letters to him, but he only receives a handful of the letters. He thanks those who are praying for him and thinking about him.

Sentence Confirmed; Prisoner Shown Letters

A judge recently confirmed Tohar’s ten year prison sentence, for charges church members say are false. “The court correctly stated the criminal act of Tohar Haydarov, and the punishment was given in proportion to the act, taking into account the public danger of the act,” the judge wrote.

Prison authorities recently showed Tohar some of the many letters sent to him, but he is not allowed to read them, because “there are too many citations from the Bible in them.”
