Alexander Sodiqov released from jail in Tajikistan on July 22

Bishkek (AKIpress) - Sodikov new Asia-Plus reached Alexander Sodiqov by phone the day after he was released from jail in Tajikistan.

The researcher said that he was treated in custody well. “Conditions in the pretrial detention facility were very good: there was good food there, wardens treated me well.”

He noticed that investigation into his case continues. “Investigation into my case is carried out without bias,” Sodiqov stressed. “I hope it will remain unbiased in the future as well.”

He also asked representatives of other media sources not to interview him yet, since the man wants to stay with the family and “fuss over the case to abate.”

The Tajik researcher contracted by the University of Exeter to help with a scholarly project, was detained in Khorog on June 16 on suspicion of spying for a foreign country after he met with local civil society activist Alim Sherzamonov.

Alexander Sodiqov denies any wrongdoing.
