Makset Djabbarbergenov, an evangelical Christian pastor, fled his home country of Uzbekistan in 2007 due to religious persecution and threat of imprisonment. He relocated in Kazakhstan with his family. On September 5, 2012, Pastor Makset was detained by Kazakhstani authorities and charged with illegal Christian activity.  He is currently under threat to be extradited back to Uzbekistan and could possibly face imprisonment of up to 9 years.
