Kholiqnazarov, who is also a member of the opposition Islamic Renaissance Party of Tajikistan, was arrested in 2014 on charges of fraud and bribery, which he denied, and was later sentenced to 16 years in prison. The organizations, including Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, argue that his conviction was politically motivated and aimed at punishing him for his human rights work. They also fear for his safety and well-being in prison, where he has reportedly faced ill-treatment and inadequate medical care. Tajikistan, which is ruled by authoritarian President Emomali Rahmon, has been criticized for its crackdown on dissent and human rights abuses.
