UZBEKISTAN: AUTHORITIES FOMENT PROTESTS TO CLOSE BAPTIST HOLIDAY CAMP
http://www.forum18.org/Archive.php?article_id=363
Using a letter from local Second World War veterans as a pretext, the
authorities in Bostanlyk district near Tashkent have removed
registration
with the state land registry from a Baptist holiday camp, effectively
closing it down. But Sobir Suleimenov, assistant to the council chief in
Kizil-Su, the closest village to the camp, denied to Forum 18 News
Service
that the veterans wanted the camp closed. Villagers told Forum 18 that
the
authorities had encouraged protests against the camp. Rakhmatullo
Ilyasov
of Bostanlyk district administration, who ordered the registration
cancellation, told Forum 18 that the law enforcement agencies had
complained that "shady people" ran the camp and that its further
functioning is therefore "inappropriate".
