On 3 November in Almaty, #SHEGEBEKULY Nurtai was tried in a political administrative case under Article 488 Part 6 (“Participation in meetings, rallies, demonstrations, marches, picketing or another public event”).

An unlawful administrative arrest of 15 days was imposed for SHEGEBEKULY Nurtai’s participation in a peaceful action on 5 October outside the Intercontinental Hotel, where the EU-Central Asia Civil Society Forum was taking place.

Since many civil and human rights activists have not been invited to the forum, SHEGEBEKULY Nurtai and other activists organised a peaceful action to expose the systematic human rights violations in Kazakhstan, political persecution, political prisoners and the failure of the Kazakhstani authorities to implement the recommendations of the European Parliament resolution of 11 February 2021.
