Evgenij Jurevic Gugnin
Uzbekistan -  23 years old

Sentenced to death

27/04/04 - Evgenij Gugnin, already sentenced to death, was given 20 years of prison

 


His story

Evgenij was sentenced to death in October 2002 for an alleged double murder committed during a robbery in a flat in Tashkent. The trial against him is indeed full of shadows. Actually, no bloodstains were found either on the knives supposedly used for the killing, or on Evgenij's clothes. He is thought the executor of the crime, but any survey was ever carried out to show that for sure. In the ruling there are no references to any investigation about all the events, but it is just reported the wrapping up of the prosecutors. The youthful age of the boy was not taken into consideration in the judgment. While in prison, he was even heavily beaten by the police and the victims' relatives.

 

The appeal to save Evgenij

The Community of Sant'Egidio invites everybody to share its appeal aiming to spare Evgenij's life from the execution, sending the following statement to the competent authorities of Uzbekistan by fax or e-mail.
