The second periodic report to the UN Human Rights Committee (CCPR/C/UZB/2004/2), submitted by Uzbekistan on April 19, 2004, does not paint an accurate picture of the human rights climate in the country. The report deals primarily with the recently adopted laws and provisions of the Constitution, but fails to address fully the real-life situation with human rights in Uzbekista, just as it failed to do so in its initial report in 1999. The government’s report simply ignores a series of facts and tendencies that have been reported by leading local and international human rights organizations.

The report cites a number of instances of gross human rights abuses gathered by Memorial and other local and international human rights organizations.
