ALMATY, Kazakhstan – The Finnish-funded Equal Before the Law (EBL) Program will call attention to the difficulties children and youth face in getting access to justice when their rights have been violated. A Central-Asia-wide conference “Putting Children First: Legal Redress” will be organized here in Almaty on June 12.
EBL held a training on 9-10 April in the southern city of Shymkent for NGO network members working with vulnerable women and children.

EBL lawyer Timur Sultanov successfully defended the interests of Kyrgyzstan farmer Yuliya Polyakova in a district court after an Aksakal court convicted her for allegedly encouraging her dogs to attack her neighbor’s livestock.
The district court overturned the Aksakal court’s decision on grounds that its proceedings violated national law. Polyakova was shielded from her neighbor’s accusations, and the Aksakal court was made aware of its breaches of code.
