To the President of the Kyrgyz Republic

Mr. S.N. Djaparov.

Urgent request from the Human Rights Movement "Bir Duino-Kyrgyzstan".


Dear President Sadyr Nurgodzhoyevich,

We are all in a dangerous situation, full of risks, conflicts and disasters, including the pandemic.

The world has changed. The fundamental right of citizens, the right to live, is in danger. You have recently personally expressed gratitude and appreciation to the doctors, volunteers and active citizens who saved people during the pandemic. However, there are thousands and thousands of those you do not know, who work every day to eliminate the risks, helping people selflessly.

We have been living for many years without good public governance and effective management by authorities at various levels, from communities to the national level. Not only do we help people in need, but we carefully monitor the systemic violations of human rights and freedoms in Kyrgyzstan, we openly talk about the facts of violations and recommend restoring human rights and demonstrating the Rule of Law to the victims suffering from injustice. This is very important and it is the mandate of the government to respond urgently to problems and solve them, so that the trust of citizens in an effective and humane government is expanded and strengthened.

Knowing the facts of harassment and persecution of you and your family members, the hardships that you endured in closed institutions, we believed that, unlike the previous nomenclature authorities (starting from the period of Akayev until October 2020), you would be able to give faith and inspiration to the citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic who need special attitude, open and kind, as we have all experienced and are experiencing the results of the predatory management by political groups that seized power for their private advantage and dishonest enrichment and narrowed the space for active citizens.

What do we see after the referendum and the local elections in the Kyrgyz Republic on 11 April 2021?

The public safety of citizens in the Kyrgyz Republic is in danger: the "Red Militia", the murders of girls, instead of an effective investigation of the fact of Aizada's death at the hands of a criminal, the repetition of the terrible technologies of the former regimes next to the building of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic, when hundreds of women and girls experienced violence, threats and open discrimination.

If an initiative had been launched in a timely manner in accordance with the new Concept of the reform of law enforcement agencies, Aizada would not have died at the hands of the criminal.  If the police had started an effective investigation and procedures, so that Aizada's mother and the public finally understood that there are new law enforcement agencies that respect human rights and freedoms in the Kyrgyz Republic, the facts of violence against vulnerable groups would have stopped.

Unfortunately, a peaceful rally of activists near the building of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic was dispersed by radical groups, retired policemen, and after all, there has been no reform of the "red police" since the Kyrgyz Republic gained its independence. What does this all mean? What is the difference between what was happening under the previous regime and what is now repeated under the new government? And what kind of a monstrous bill is initiated by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic?

It is important now to urgently develop a new Concept of reforming the power structures of the Kyrgyz Republic, and to demonstrate the difference between the past regimes and the new government.

The role of mass media, TV and radio during tragedies: The state mass media on different channels should conduct programs very clearly stating that the Kyrgyz Republic will no longer put up with "ala kachuu", that this is an attempt on a person's Life, so that the whole society understands that there is a new government fighting against evil, to stop systemic violence and murder of girls and women, sexual violence against girls. The facts of polygamy should stop in the Kyrgyz Republic!

The lives of patients in hospitals are in danger: We are alarmed and fear for the lives of many citizens in hospitals, because without the research and conclusions of medical experts, it is forbidden to conduct medical experiments, as openly proposed by the Minister of Health of the Kyrgyz Republic, Mr. A. Beishenaliev[i].

We remember about the monstrous experiments of doctors in Nazi Germany. After the trial of the doctors of the Third Reich, in 1947, the Nuremberg Code was developed - an international document on bioethics, the principles of which formed the basis of international agreements.

No one has the right to conduct experiments without the consent of the patient, the Minister of Health of the Kyrgyz Republic should remember this. We hope that the Prosecutor General's Office of the Kyrgyz Republic will provide its assessment and take urgent measures in this regard.

We look forward to your new initiatives to promote new reforms in the Kyrgyz Republic as a member of the UN, OSCE and other international organizations, respect for human rights and freedoms, equal dialogue and expert consultations for decision-making at all levels of the government.

Time is running out!

Sincerely, partner network of the HRM "Bir Duino-Kyrgyzstan"

Feedback from our focus groups



Experience should be attached to a law degree

Shakhboz Latipov, 24 y.o., young lawyer: “When I came to BDK for an internship, I had no experience in legal and human rights activities. Together with experienced senior colleagues, I began to attend trials, studied documents. Gradually my supervisor Khusanbai Saliev began to trust me the preparation of documents, carefully checked them and gave practical advice. Experience comes with time and cases you work on. Every day dozens of people who need help come to us, many of them are from socially vulnerable groups: the poor, large families, elderly citizens. A lawyer in a human rights organization sometimes acts as a psychologist, it is important for him to be able to maintain professionalism and show empathy. At the end of 2019, I successfully passed the exam to get the right to start working as attorney and now I work on cases as an attorney. I turn to my colleagues for help on complex issues, they always give me their advice. This is one of the strengths of the organization: there is support and understanding here.”



Organization unites regions

Feruza Amadalieva, social worker, leader, teacher: “TOT from BDK is a great opportunity to get acquainted with participants from different regions, we continue to communicate on social media and when we meet at events, as close friends, we have such warm relations! At the events, I improved my knowledge, systematized it, clarified how to apply it in practice. I really like the training modules and the way the system of training and practice is built: role-playing games, theory, discussions. Each person expresses himself/herself. I have become a leader for other vulnerable women, I try to help them and engage them in such events.” Feruza Amadalieva is a regular participant of many BDK events, she invites the BDK lawyers to provide legal advice to vulnerable women.



I became confident

In summer of 2019, Nuriza Talantbek kyzy took an active part in conducting regional screenings of documentaries, helped with organizational issues during the campaign dedicated to the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, participated in trips, and did the TOT on women's leadership. She used to be a migrant, worked for an NGO in Osh, and now works in Bishkek in the service industry. She calls her participation in the TOT “an invaluable experience”: “I first attended such an event, and received exactly the information that I needed, for which I am sincerely grateful to the facilitators. I experienced very difficult issues in my life, and thanks to that knowledge, I was able to overcome them, I persevered! After the TOT, I became more confident, began to better understand the essence of human rights, and learned to defend my interests.”



The defendant has passed away. The work on his rehabilitation continues.

The case of Shukurullo Kochkarov shows that work on complex cases continues for many years. After the torture he was subjected to in 2010, he became disabled. We managed to get acquittal on one of the charges; the work is ongoing on achieving his rehabilitation and recognition as a victim of torture in order for compensation to be paid. Trials continue without Shukurullo Kochkarov - he died on 2 August 2019. His interests are represented by his father, Saidaziz Kochkarov, who also has a visual disability. “For many years, we have been supported by the employees of BDK, they have been handling the case of my son, they brought him to court because he couldn’t walk on his own, they constantly help our family: my wife and I underwent rehabilitation, they have helped my son by providing him with medicines, they provide all kinds of help”.



Comprehensive support for victims of torture

Resident of the Kara-Suu district, Dilyor Jumabaev, has extensive experience in dealing with law enforcement agencies. In 2010, he was accused of possessing firearms, and thanks to the work of lawyers, he was acquitted. Two years later, his house was first searched in order to find materials of an extremist nature, but nothing was found. In 2014, he was accused of possessing extremist materials. In court, the prosecutor requested 15 years in prison; the court sentenced him to 6 years. A few years later he was released on parole. “I am grateful to the lawyers of BDK for their expert legal assistance. I participated in a rehabilitation program for victims of torture. When I encounter violations, I recommend contacting this organization.”
