European parliament votes to condemn Nazarbayev

Independent international inquiry into killings at Zhenaozen agreed

On 16 February, Paul Murphy MEP spoke in the European Parliament in Strasbourg about the brutal dictatorship in Kazakhstan of Nursultan Nazarbayev. He was moving an amendment to a resolution on human rights which was passed.

All supporters of the campaign for democratic and workers’ rights in Kazakhstan will use this decision to step up their campaigning work — to get more and more trade union and parliamentary figures to back the campaign, to get support from lawyers, journalists and organisations of workers and youth world-wide and to raise finance to assist those who fight for their rights against the regime.

The agreed addition said that the European Parliament «Is alarmed by the deteriorating human rights situation in Kazakhstan; takes the view that the report by the General Prosecutor’s Office on the events in Zhanaozen and Shetpe (West Kazakhstan) does not sufficiently deal with the role of the Kazakh state forces in the brutal repression of protests by striking oil workers, their sympathisers and supporters on 16-18 December 2011, which left at least 17 people dead; is outraged by the subsequent arrests of leading figures of the opposition parties, human rights defenders and journalists; calls for an independent, international inquiry into the events and for the immediate release of all political prisoners, including the oil workers´ lawyer Natalia Sokolowa; stresses the need to discuss the human rights situation in Kazakhstan at the forthcoming session of the UNHRC.

Messages of support and reports of protests can be read on the CampaignKazakhstan.org website.
