TAGS: PREL PGOV PHUM PREF UZ RS
SUBJECT: DEMARCHE ON DEPORTATION OF UZBEK ASYLUM SEEKER 
DELIVERED TO MFA 
 
REF: STATE 185048 
 
Classified By: Political M/C Alice G. Wells.  Reasons: 1.4(B/D). 
 
1.  (C)  We met November 22 with MFA Human Rights and 
Humanitarian Cooperation Department Deputy Director Mikhail 
Lebedev and his staff to discuss the deportation of Rustam 
Muminov to Uzbekistan and to underline U.S. concerns about 
deportation of other asylum seekers to Uzbekistan given 
Tashkent's record on torture.  Lebedev was aware of Muminov's 
case and attributed the deportation to a lack of coordination 
between Russian government agencies.  He pointed out that his 
limited staff did not usually get involved in individual 
cases, which they were often unaware of until there was a 
complaint from another government or a human rights 
organization. 
 
2.  (C)  Turning to the question of Uzbekistan's record on 
torture, Lebedev said that Russia did not agree with the 
conclusions of the U.N. Special Rapporteur.  While Moscow did 
have concerns in some cases, the MFA could not conclude that 
torture in Uzbekistan was systemic.
