Uzbekistan: Concern About EBRD Decision On Tashkent

In May 2002, Human Rights Watch joined fifty-three other non-governmental organizations in writing to EBRD President Jean Lemierre to express concern about the detrimental impact of holding the meeting in Tashkent on respect for human rights in Uzbekistan and on the Bank's credibility as an institution committed to democracy, human rights, and the rule of law. The letter is part of a year-long Human Rights Watch campaign to promote reform in Uzbekistan in advance of the 2003 EBRD meeting.
