Umida Akhmedova - Update

Today The New York Times published this report on the prosecution of Uzbek photographer Umida Akhmedova on charges of slandering the state. I had posted on the case here a couple of weeks ago. Akhmedova was found guilty of the charges but the court declined to impose a penalty which might've involved several years imprisonment. You can find more on the case here at RFE/RL.

Glad she got off without doing any time. Here's another case from another country. The guy hasn't been so lucky.
