Kyrgyzstan: Halt Anti-Gay Raids – a Human Rights Watch report

The very well highlighted situation with unexpected visits of militia to our Community Centre has received a great amount of international attention. Among others, it has been addressed by Human Rights Watch, which released a press release on 17 April. We apologize for bringing the news with so much delay – there shall be no excuses, only apologies on our part. The press release may be read here.

Labrys has also sent an Individual Communication to UN Special Rapporteurs on Arbitrary Detention; Promotion and Protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression; Violence against women, its causes and consequences; Situation of human rights defenders. We are currently waiting for a response from them and possible reaction from Kyrgyz authorities.
