Final report by the Chair of the DROI Delegation (Delegation of the subcommittee of the EP on human rights to the RK)

Members inquired about the tragic events of Zhanaozen, their causes and their aftermath. After expressing concern about the conditions of detention in the country’s jails –and visiting a penal colony- they called for further improvement of those conditions in the framework of the on-going reform of the penitentiary system to meet international standards. They also called on the authorities to review the cases of prisoners convicted on grounds that could be considered to be politically motivated. In that context the transfer of Ms. Roza Tuletaeva to an open colony and of Mr.Kozlov to a detention centre closer to his place of residence are positive first steps.
