Kazakhstan: Persecution of NGO for “failure to pay taxes” as authorities again clamp down on dissent

The case also sends a chilling message to other human rights and legal assistance NGOs that they could face reprisals simply for assisting people to exercise their rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly.
