Kyrgyzstan: Still waiting for justice: One year on from the violence in southern Kyrgyzstan
In June 2010, four days of violent clashes between ethnic Kyrgyz and ethnic Uzbeks in southern Kyrgyzstan left thousands injured, hundreds dead and hundreds of thousands displaced. The Kyrgyzstani authorities are obliged to establish the truth about what happened. They must provide justice for the thousands of victims of the serious crimes and human rights violations, including crimes against humanity. However, one year on from the June violence, justice is no closer to being done.
