Report: Migrants exploited in Kazakhstan

ALMATY, Kazakhstan, July 14 (UPI) -- Owners of tobacco farms in Kazakhstan are cheating and exploiting migrant workers, a new report by a human rights group alleges.

Human Rights Watch released a 115-page report Wednesday documenting a litany of alleged abuses including failing to pay regular wages, requiring excessively long work hours, confiscating passports and failing to provide written contracts.

The group says the farmers frequently use child labor with children as young as 10-years-old working in the fields.

"Many of these tobacco workers -- adults and children alike -- come to Kazakhstan and found themselves in virtual bondage," says senior researcher Jane Buchanan.

Buchanan says the government of Kazakhstan clearly needs to do much more to protect tobacco workers along with Philip Morris Kazakhstan, the firm that purchases tobacco from the farmers.

Experts estimate that Kazakhstan hosts from 300,000 to 1 million migrant workers each year, the vast majority coming from countries in the former Soviet Union.

Astana court rejects Jakishev’s appeal
Astana. July 14.
http://www.interfax.kz/?lang=eng&int_id=10&news_id=3612

Interfax-Kazakhstan – The Specialized Inter-district Criminal Court of Astana considered an appeal by the former head of the National Atomic Company Kazatomprom Mukhtar Jakishev leaving the sentence unchanged, Jakishev’s lawyer Nurlan Beisekeyev said on Wednesday.

“The court upheld the verdict. All our reasoning and complaints were dismissed, the sentence was left unchanged,” he told reporters after the court hearing.

“We don’t know the grounds and reasons (for the court’s decision – IF-K). The court only announced the ruling,” Beisekeyev added.

According to the lawyer, he filed several appeals to call additional witnesses, hold expert investigations and questioned the results of the Finance Ministry’s audits.

“We were hoping that the Astana court would understand that the court of original jurisdiction allowed some serious violations of the criminal procedure law,” Beisekeyev noted.

The lawyer intends to appeal to the Supreme Court of Kazakhstan and European courts.

The court did not introduce any changes in the sentence of Jakishev’s former driver Talgat Kystaubayev.



As previously reported, on March 12 the Astana court found Mukhtar Dzhakishev guilty of misappropriation and bribery and sentenced him to 14 years in prison. The court also sentenced Dzhakishev's bodyguard, Talgat Kystaubayev, to five years in prison and stripped him of his military rank of major.

The investigation into the uranium case was launched in March last year on charges of embezzlement brought against Kazatomprom top managers. The case provoked a massive public response.
