UN Committee does not think that rights of Kadyrzhan Batyrov violated

The UN Committee did not find violations of Kadyrzhan Batyrov’s rights on the part of the state (Kyrgyzstan). Institute of the Ombudsman said.

According to it, the organization’s representatives considered an individual complaint of ex-chairman of the Uzbek diaspora Kadyrzhan Batyrov dated October 17, 2011 regarding his right to the presumption of innocence and issued a conclusion.

According to the document, Kadyrzhan Batyrov’s complaint does not contain violations of his rights on the part of Kyrgyzstan, since Kadyrzhan Batyrov did not justify how the resolution of the Parliament could influence the criminal proceedings in his case.

Moreover, according to the UN Committee, Kadyrzhan Batyrov did not provide information on the criminal prosecution, as well as the copies of the first instance court’s decision dated October 28, 2011. In addition, he did not complain about possible shortcomings in the trial and did not indicate how the decision of the Parliament affected its outcome.

The UN Committee considers Kadyrzhan Batyrov’s accusations against Kyrgyzstan as unfounded. The committee’s decision is final and not subject to appeal.

It is especially noted that the committee did not consider the application of Kadyrzhan Batyrov about his alleged discrimination by the state on the basis of ethnicity.

Recall, in May 2010, Kadyrzhan Batyrov was charged with separatism and organizing riots in the south of Kyrgyzstan.
