Concluding Observations, CCPR/C/KGZ/CO/2, 25 March 2014: Kyrgyzstan

9. The Committee is concerned about reports of violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons by both State and non-State actors, and the failure on the part of the State party to address such violence (arts. 2 and 26).

The State party should ensure that violence against LGBT persons is thoroughly investigated, that perpetrators are prosecuted, and if convicted, punished with appropriate sanctions, and that the victims are adequately compensated and protected against reprisals.
