News at Eleven: Aron Atabek is currently in jail in Kazakhstan,

having served five years of an 18 year sentence for supposedly orchestrating "mass disorder"--protesting against the demolition of the shanty-town Shanrak.

He vehemently denies any guilt, and has rejected an offer by the government of a pardon, on condition that he confessed.
