Much remained to be done to improve the human rights situation in Tajikistan

Why is the Human Rights Day important?

Human rights and freedoms enshrined in the text of the Declaration, run through it as a red thread and remain current. This is also underlined by the Tajik human rights activists who promote and protect human rights and fundamental freedoms in Tajikistan in various areas. Below are their statements dedicated to International Human Rights Day...

Rahimova Khursheda, Director of the PO "Ibtido": “On Human Rights Day, I would like to speak about the work of human rights defenders, civil activists, and volunteers who, in their daily work, face violations of the various rights of citizens, and raise these issues. In other words, they talk about problems that others are afraid to speak up about. The number of appeals are decreasing every year, however, much remained to be done to improve the human rights situation in Tajikistan”.
