The Committee used this report in its work, recommended taking measures to protect the labor migrants. The government adopted the recommendations in 2016.

«The experts only point out that the report is one-sided, but it has nothing to do with extremism. However, the judge Dzhanaliev ruled that the report sent to the Committee for the Protection of the Rights of Workers and Their Families was extremist,» Erik Iriskulbekov added.
