Help Vasily Aleksanyan
- Karen Alcock
Vasily Aleksanyan was arrested in 2006 just days after his appointment as Vice President of Yukos.
He was imprisoned for embezzlement and money laundering. Soon after, a medical revealed that Mr Aleksanyan had contracted HIV/AIDS.
Mr Aleksanyan is being denied life-saving medical treatment and his condition is now critical.
Russia has ignored repeated injunctions from the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) requiring that Vasily be hospitalized in a specialist civilian AIDS clinic.
We, the undersigned, call on the Russian government to grant Mr Aleksanyan treatment immediately and uphold the judgement of the ECHR.
The Help Vasily Aleksanyan petition to Russian government was written by Karen Alcock and is in the category Human Rights at GoPetition.
