Tajik Supreme Court frees three convicted terrorists and lowers sentence of others involved in Tavildara events

The Supreme Court of Tajikistan released three convicts who were sentenced to up to 30 years of prison due to terrorism charges. The court also significantly relieved punishment of 26 others convicted in collaboration with terrorist groups, illegal possession of weapon, anti-government activities and other charges. They were part of 46 citizens arrested in connection to Tavildara 2009 events and convicted by the same court last June. The Supreme Court says that, although 29 of the convicts asked for the retrial of the verdicts, all 46 cases were revised. The Court generally confirmed its previous verdicts, but reduced the punishment.
