[liberationtech] Question on Uzbekistan

From:   Melanie Adrian <Melanie_Adrian at>

I am wondering if any of you have followed the implementation (or lack
thereof) of the 2005 Uzbek case decided on by the Human Rights
Committee of the ICCPR? This is the case of Ms. Hudoyberganova who
petitioned the Committee after she was denied the right to wear her
headscarf at Tashkent State Institute for Eastern Languages. The
Committee decided in her favor. Did the Uzbek state address this issue
at all following the decision? I can't seem to find anything on this.

Thanks so much for your help,

Case Reference:

Human Rights Committee of the ICCPR, "Communication No.931/2000:
Uzbekistan," in CCPR/C/82/D/931/2000, ed. United Nations (2005).
