“IF ANYTHING HAPPENS TO ME, PLEASE BLAME IT ON THE KAZAKHSTANI AUTHORITIES”.

29 May 2021#Almaty Political persecution during peaceful rallies announced by the peaceful opposition movement “DCK” for 29-30 May 2021.

The NSC officers regularly threaten civil activist #SHOKANOVA Kamilla with physical violence. Before every peaceful rally, they call Kamilla and threaten to kill her. On 29 May, the NSC again called her from a secure number and threatened to kill her, demanding that she not take part in the rallies.

Therefore, the activist cannot move freely and quietly in the street in normal life. She is constantly being followed by unknown people who hide their faces with black glasses and masks.

Because of this, Kamilla only travels around the city in taxis, and goes shopping for groceries with live broadcasts on her social media accounts. In this way, the activist protects herself from unexpected attacks by NSC officers and provocateurs.

Kamilla SHOKANOVA asks to blame the Kazakhstani authorities if anything happens to her.

Kamilla SHOKANOVA has been persecuted by the Kazakhstani authorities for criticising them and participating in peaceful protests, single-man pickets and challenges in support of political prisoners and the persecuted activists.

She has previously been detained at protests, abducted by police and beaten during one of the peaceful rallies.
