Human rights defenders prepare a report on Turkmenistan for the UN Committee

As has been previously reported, in early March 2017 the United Nations Human Rights Committee will conduct the final review of the second periodic report submitted by Turkmenistan under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).

The Turkmen Initiative for Human Rights, together with the International Partnership for Human Rights, has prepared an alternative submission for the UN Committee, and pursuant to the procedure, representatives of these human rights organizations will hold a meeting with the Committee members in Geneva in early March.
