It's the thought that counts

PEN member Richard McKane pays tribute to jailed Uzbek journalist Sobirjon Yoqubov:


I continually think on the fate of Sobirjan
a fine journalist but only a young man:
there he is in the Tashkent can,
we have to unite forces and do what we can.

Mr. President of Uzbekistan,
in your fine residence, do you understand
what your regime's doing in imprisoning this young man?
With all due respect, the process seems underhand.
