UN Special Rapporteur on the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association concerned about situation in Kazakhstan
One of the most pressing issues, the Special Rapporteur said, was the Government’s approach to regulating peaceful assemblies. Although the right is guaranteed by Kazakhstan’s Constitution, all peaceful assemblies must be authorized by local authorities, and even authorized assemblies are limited to specific, government-designated sites.
