Reçu d’un témoin sur place. French version.
» Now I do not want even to read news in order to renew my wounds, all local newspapers, news websites are full of news about how Uzbeks were bad, not satisfied, it was not genocide, it was started by Uzbeks, the world is on the side of Uzbeks, etc. What they do now: actively arrest Uzbeks, all suspects are Uzbeks, all Uzbek leaders’ office were full of guns and of Islamic litreture, all Uzbeks are terrorists…
Today I was reading news and came up to the phrase of the Deputy to Finance Minister, he says: « Osh city should be changed, the conflict started because two ethnicities were leaving in the divided areas. We will be building appartment block where Uzbek and Kyrgyz will live together, use one clinic, one school, kindergarden ». For me it has very much direct hint/warning to Uzbeks « don’t even hope to get back to your burnt houses, there will be now appartment blocks for Kyrgyz ». If even there will be new appartments Uzbeks do not have any possibilities to buy anything.
Now one can make conclusion that the main goal of burning houses in the city centers was to settle in there Kyrgyz areas, as they were staying out of the city centers, it was the same in 1990. Uzbeks now are afraid for their lives and will not say anything. They will prefer to live in the surburbs where Uzbeks live and maybe in the closer villages to Uzbekistan.
Yesterday I read from http://www.ozodlik.com (freedom website in Uzbek), the article about Uzbeks arrested for that they have caught 2-3 Kyrgyz guys who were putting the Uzbek houses in Cheremushki on fire. Uzbeks did not kill them, did not beat them (nobody would know if they would do it) they just handed in them to the police. Now those Kyrgyz guys are victims, and Uzbeks are being questionned why they caught Kyrgyz guys if they were not police…
How to stand this injustice? How to live in your own land where several generations lived? Where to go? How to start new life if you do not have anything to start with, even the desire? If even there is place to go one cannot leave his parents, sisters, brothers, cousins for their own. How to live? How to live in KG if you are afraid of protesting for your own simple human rights?
All Uzbek leaders are arrested, who will fight for our rights now? Why international community will not initiate the international investigation for objectiveness? I see all foreign mass media talking about Uzbeks but nobody is taking any actions. Why the officials of the leading world states put in first place the interest of their state but not human rights: US for their airbase Manas and Russia for their base in Kant?
How to fight with massacre of minorities in the states if the so-much-PRed human rights organizations and UN do not care about the people? Or the number of 1mln Uzbeks is not enough to be interrupted for them? I have no answer. Nobody has answer.
The mass killings of Uzbeks stopped, but not seizing their propoties, arresting rich people and letting them out after they take all what they had. The owner of burnt Merkurii and Yupiter restaurant was taken as hostage and was released for $20,000, but he was made as well to sign the documents for his properties. »
J’ai coupé certaines parties qui auraient pu permettre d’identifier cet informateur : de nombreux ouzbeks occupant de hauts postes ont été licenciés…
