Use visit of Kyrgyzstan’s president to secure human rights commitments

The EU leaders should prominently address human rights issues with Kyrgyzstan’s President Almazbek Atambayev, who is in Brussels for meetings on 26-27 March, and insist that he use his powers to ensure compliance with the country’s international human rights obligations.

This is the message in a joint letter sent to European Council President Donald Tusk, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and European Parliament President Martin Schultz by a group of NGOs, including the Norwegian Helsinki Committee, ahead of Atambayev’s visit to Brussel.
