Who, Why and How exiled: Tadzhikalilov fled from Adizhan following the attacks of security forces on mainly unarmed demonstrators.
Stage 2 details (arrest/ detention/ extradition): In September 2005, whilst his refugee status was still in the process of being reviewed, he was detained with four others - Zhakhongir Maksudov, Odilzhon Rakhimov, Yakub Toshboev and Rasulzhon Pirmatov. The men were alleged by Uzbekistani authorities to have been involved in the murder of the Andizhan city prosecutor in May 2005.
Stage 3 details (attack/ abduction/ rendition/ torture/ assassination/ death): In August 2006, Tadzhikalilov and the four other men were extradited to Uzbekistan. The Kyrgyzstani authorities had reportedly been given diplomatic assurances by Uzbekistan that the five men would be treated according to Uzbekistani criminal legislation and that international organizations would be granted access to them. However, the five were reportedly held incommunicado in Uzbekistan. In November 2006, it was announced that a criminal investigation into the cases of the five men had been completed, and that all five had been charged with the murder of the Andizhan city prosecutor in May 2005.
