Student POC released from prison in Tajikistan

More proof that worldwide activism can save lives: According to Amnesty International, Alexander Sodiqov has been released from prison in Tajikistan and is now back home in Canada!

Amnesty considered Sodiqov a prisoner of conscience "who was detained solely for exercising his right to freedom of expression, as he had been undertaking legitimate academic research intended for publication." He was the subject of Amnesty's Urgent Action 157/14.

Thanks to all who took action on his behalf.
