[29.11.23] Kyrgyz Justice Ministry Reregisters "Illegal" Human Rights Group

The Kyrgyz Justice Ministry has reregistered the Kyrgyz Committee for Human Rights (KCHR) under the chairmanship of Bolot Tynaliev, despite a recent warning from the Vienna-based International Helsinki Federation (IHT) that doing so would be illegal "Obshchestvennyi reiting" reported on 29 November. The IHT and other international human rights groups have refused to recognize the August election of Tynaliev, who was not even a member of the KCHR at the time, to replace long-time KCHR head Ramazan Dyryldaev, one of Kyrgyzstan's most uncompromising human rights activists.
