Human rights Deputy High Commissioner reports to Human Rights Council on KyrgyzstanListen /
There are still concerns about the delivery of justice in Kyrgyzstan, according to a report from the Office of the UN Human Rights Commissioner.
Kyung-wha Kang, the United Nations Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights, presented the report on technical assistance and human rights in Kyrgyzstan to the Human Rights Council in Geneva.
She was referring to ethnic clashes that took place in the country in 2010.
"Despite some efforts, concerns remain that two years after the June 2010 violence in the south of Kyrgyzstan, institutional deficiencies continue to hamper the delivery of justice and undermine the rule of law."
Ms. Kang said the authorities have a duty to ensure accountability for crimes and abuses and guarantee justice for victims and their families.
