TOKAYEV'S POLITICAL REPRESSION IN THE BEST NAZARBAYEV’S TRADITIONS
The lawyer Baurzhan AZANOV reports that he received a phone call from Azamat #BATYRBAYEV'S wife @amnesty @freedomhouse @hrw2/5 in connection with the fact that their house was searched.
Instead of investigating and arresting all those involved in the brutal torture of Azamat BATYRBAYEV, the authorities are prosecuting him. What kind of “search” is it, three months after the protests? @rozathun
1/3 FREEDOM FOR KAIRAT KLYSHEV
The court hearing on consideration of the parole for political prisoner Kairat KLYSHEV has now ended. The court granted Kairat KLYSHEV'S motion. We expect Kairat to be free in 15 days. @AmnestyEECA @freedomhouse @hrw2/3 It is worth noting that there is a risk that the prosecutor's office will file a protest and the court of appeal will reverse the decision on parole. We therefore continue to demand the release of Kairat KLYSHEV. @UnderSecStateJ @Ombudsperson_KZ @EUinKazakhstan
It is reported that a court hearing will be held on 11 April to consider the parole for political prisoner Kairat #KLYSHEV. @AmnestyEECA @freedomhouse @hrw2/5 Kairat KLYSHEV was illegally convicted in a politically motivated criminal case in October 2021 for his civil activism - participation in peaceful protests,criticism of the authorities, demands to release political prisoners. @UnderSecStateJ @anceschistan @Ombudsperson_KZ
