In recent years, the NGO Coalitions against Torture in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan have set up Legal Aid Groups to strengthen their work on individual cases and increase pressure for necessary legislative reforms. On behalf of the NGO partners jointly engaged in the EU-funded project “Action for Freedom from Torture in Kazakhstan and Tajikistan“, Rachel Bugler and Anne Sunder-Plassmann (IPHR) interviewed members of the Legal Aid Groups in each of the three countries to learn more about their work, the successes and challenges and what is required to reach the goal of ending torture.

This is the sixth issue of the Freedom from torture newsletter that is published by the NGO coalitions against torture in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights and International Partnership for Human Rights.
