Kazakhstan: Old habits: The routine use of torture and other ill-treatment in Kazakhstan
Torture remains commonplace in Kazakhstan and the torturers are allowed to go free. The authorities of Kazakhstan have failed to hold the security forces accountable and to carry out an independent investigation into their abuses. It is time to change a culture that always ranks security above human rights. Reform is long overdue and real changes should be introduced as a matter of urgency. Victims of government abuses and their families are still waiting for justice.
