Aziza Abdirasulova

HRD, director
Kylym Shamy

Aziza Abdirasulova is the Head of the public foundation 'Kylym Shamy', which is involved in monitoring detention facilities and providing legal assistance in cases of torture.


Human rights defenders in Kyrgyzstan continue to be subjected to harassment, and face restrictions on freedom of expression, assembly and association. Family members of human rights defenders also face threats, harassment and persecution. The authorities systematically fail to investigate these incidents and to bring those responsible to justice. In several cases, perpetrators operate with the complicity of law enforcement agents.
