A court in Uzbekistan’s capital Tashkent has fined both Grigory Kasparov and his wife Yelena for “illegally storing” Kasparov’s Christian books in their private home.
This was despite Yelena Kasparova refusing to sign a ‘confession’ police attempted to force from her for this ‘offence’. The verdict in Kasparov’s case states that the books were destroyed even before the Court had found Kasparov guilty and decided what to do with the books.
A court official admitted that bailiffs destroyed the books, but refused to state whether bailiffs are allowed to do this before a verdict.
