The Disappeared

Our current September 2017 updates the Prove They Are Alive! campaign’s list of the disappeared in Turkmenistan, increasing the number of disappeared individuals from 88, documented in our previous list and report in September 2016, to the current number: 112.

The common threads among the 112 individuals listed in the report are: 1) There has been no verifiable information about whereabouts and condition of these people since their trial, and in some cases, since their arrest. 2) None of them has had any contact with their family, and their families have received no information about their health, circumstance, or whereabouts, in most cases since they were imprisoned. 3) None of them has been seen by legal representation, external medical experts, or international monitoring organizations, including the International Red Cross, since they were imprisoned.
