Azamat Tynaev: Lawsuits against media - frank instrument of pressure

Lawsuits against the media are a frank instrument of pressure. Media expert Azamat Tynaev said today at a round table discussion.

According to him, at first, it is necessary to prove that the information is unreliable, and then talk about money and, all the more so, to freeze the accounts of the media. It can be regarded as the desire to intimidate journalists and paralyze their work.

Head of the Legal Clinic Adilet Cholpon Dzhakupova criticized the institute of the Ombudsman.

«Your task is to react promptly to blatant violations of human rights, rather than to create dialogue platforms and write tame resolutions," Cholpon Dzhakupova said.

In her opinion, aggressive rhetoric and repressive measures are being used in the republic currently.
