Categories: Central Asia & Caucasus, Uzbekistan, Breaking News, Citizen Media, Politics

On Registan.net Noah Tucker reports [1] that the 71-year-old father of an Uzbek opposition politician has disappeared in police custody in Uzbekistan. The authorities intimidate the elderly man (as well as scores of his relatives) apparently because his son founded an opposition party that had been quite successful in mobilizing supporters in the Central Asian nation.
