November 2022

A trial for 22 people arrested on a range of charges during the July street protests in Karakalpakstan following the decision to downgrade the region’s autonomous status began on 28 November in Bukhara. The investigation was largely closed, and the announcement of the charges and trial was the first official news regarding the 516 arrested since early July.
