Uzbekistan: One Of World’s Worst Nine Countries In Terms Of Human Rights

Posted by Info on 07/06/2010

According to Freedom House’s Worst of the Worst 2010: The World’s Most Repressive Societies report.

Uzbekistan, along with Burma, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Libya, North Korea, Somali, Turkmenistan and China, received a maximum score of seven.

“In this report we identify countries where individuals have almost no opportunity to enjoy the most fundamental rights – regimes whose people experience heavy penalties for independent thought or action and where little or no oppositional activity is permitted to exist. By highlighting these countries, we hope to give human rights advocates a tool they can use to shine a light on these abuses at the world’s only global human rights body.”

  1. Uzbekistan is like hell on earth according to news reports and that very well may be true, but I have a friend from there who lived under Karimov, he said it wasn’t so bad unless you crossed him. Maybe that is why he left.
