Kazakhstan - OPCAT Situation
Kazakhstan ratified the OPCAT in 2008 with a declaration under Article 24 (OPCAT) postponing the establishment of its NPM for a few years. However, discussions have been ongoing in the country since the ratification on how to better implement the human rights treaty.
Several NPM proposals have been discussed, including making use of existing structures which monitor places of detention.
The SPT member Arman Danielyan is the SPT Focal Point for Kazakhstan.
