Craig Murray (born October, 1958) was the United Kingdom's Ambassador to Uzbekistan. He was removed from his post on October 14, 2004. While in office, he criticized the Karimov administration of human rights abuses, which he argues was against the wishes of the British government and the reason for his removal. Murray claims he complained to the FCO in November 2002, January or early February 2003, and in June 2004 that intelligence linking the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan to al-Qaeda, suspected of being gained through torture, was unreliable, immoral, and illegal. He accused Her Majesty's Government of "selling our souls for dross".
