An Analysis of the Uzbek Government’s June 30, 2006 Aide-Memoire

Legacy Link
In this 16-page briefing paper, Human Rights Watch analyzes an Uzbek government memorandum from June 2006, which was prepared in response to a December 2005 UN General Assembly resolution that was critical of Uzbekistan’s human rights record. The memorandum denies the existence of any human rights problems in the country, and rejects the international community’s concerns about human rights as “unfounded.” The briefing paper contrasts some of the assertions made in the memorandum with Human Rights Watch's findings on the ground.
