RFE/RL commentator Sazak Durdymuradov has been released following two weeks of detention in Turkmenistan, part of the time at an infamous psychiatric hospital in the remote east.
An Ashgabat correspondent for RFE/RL's Turkmen Service spoke to Durdymuradov's family, who confirmed his return home to the town of Baharden on July 4.
Durdymuradov's son, Atajan, says his father is in good health. That's despite reports that Durdymuradov was beaten and tortured while in custody for not signing a statement pledging never to work for RFE/RL again.
